Eric Stults set to kick off the series in Colorado

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Last night Ian Kennedy faced off against his former team and didn't fare too well. Hopefully Eric Stults has a better outing against one of his former teams tonight as our Padres kick off a series at Coors Field.

After taking the first two games in the four-game series at home against the Diamondbacks, the Padres offense was limited to just one run in each of the final two contests. Stultsy is no stranger to this lack of run support. in 14 of his last 27 starts, he's received one run or fewer from his offense. Tonight he'll look to get the Friars' road trip started on a positive note in Colorado. It'll be his fourth time facing the Rockies this year and he's still seeking his first win after going 0-1 with a 3.78 ERA in the previous three.

Tyler Matzek will go for Colorado, also looking for his first win in the season series between the two teams. He pitched twice against them earlier this year, losing both games while allowing five runs through six frames in each.

Tune in to FSSD at 5:40 PT for the opener of the series and see if our Padres can use Coors Field to their advantage to score some runs for Stults.
