With four games to go for both the Rockies and the D-backs, and the Rox with a 3.5-game lead, it would take a minor miracle for the Snakes to climb back over our boys, given that Arizona goes to St. Louis to close it out. (Maybe a major, mathematically-impossible miracle? Too much math for me.) The Padres historically hit about as well as the Rockies pitch, and there are no ties in baseball, so something will give, usually one run or so either way under the marine layer. It’s Yohan Flande for the Rockies, a bit of an enigma, against rather inexperienced Joe Wieland for the Padres, who gave up four runs to the Rox in a short outing earlier this month.
