07/10 Padres Preview: Game 92 vs. Colorado

USA TODAY Sports

Andrew Cashner hasn't had the best career against Colorado. Tonight he'll try to make up for it a little and lead the Padres to their first series win in almost a month.

Andrew Cashner's last start was one he could probably stand to forget. Last Friday against the Nationals, he gave up a season-high six runs on five hits and three walks and was pulled before even recording an out in the third inning. Tonight he'll go for his first win and try to improve on his 9.77 lifetime ERA in his third start (seventh outing altogether) against the Rockies.

This time around he'll face a Colorado lineup that is missing Troy Tulowitzki and Dexter Fowler and could be missing Carlos Gonzalez as well. But the Rockies are 9-3 against the Padres already this season and tonight they'll send Jorge De La Rosa to the mound to go for his sixth career win against the club. De La Rosa has been one of their most consistent pitchers this season and has had a lot of success in his previous appearances against San Diego. He is 5-1 in 13 career starts versus San Diego and undefeated at Petco Park. But a lot of that has to do with his offense, who have averaged nearly 7 1/2 runs in each of those 13 starts, making up for De La Rosa's lifetime 5.40 ERA against the Padres.
