Colorado plays the third game of a four-game set tonight attempting to win or split the final road series before returning home. Last night they played in their fifth straight one-run game. They are 2-3 in the current one-run game streak and own a 3-6 road record on the season. The Rockies did accomplish a rare feat last night; they actually won a game when the opponent scored first. In 2013 they were 3-38 when the opponent scored first when away from Coors Field. Jorge De la Rosa has a statement game tonight – is he a head case or not? He simply needs to keep the Rockies in the game over at least six innings. The Padres appears to be a tad bit short-handed in their bullpen as Dale Thayer has thrown the last two games and Tim Stauffer threw a couple of innings last night. Injury update: Jhoulys Chacin threw 2.2 innings last night for the Modesto Nuts. He gave up 4 ER and 3 hits with 2 walks and 2 strikeouts in his first rehab start.
