Situational Slaughter - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #919 Friday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Colorado Rockies vs San Diego Padres @ 8:10 ET - This will be interesting. For the first time ever that I am aware of, a game at Coors Field will feature a designated hitter. As long-time followers know, games at Coors Field can get nuts due to the thin air in the high altitude and how well the ball carries. Now over players will also have the added benefit of the pitcher NOT batting and that means no more rally-ending situations where a pitcher that is hitting .050 walks up to the plate. For these reasons, games at Coors Field should be crazier than ever as another key comment I want to make is the way pitches break here is different too. It is not an easy park to pitch in and this will be the first time ever pitching here for the Padres Garrett Richards Though he had a successful first start against Arizona to open this season he relied heavily on his breaking pitches. Richards won't be able to have the same command of those pitches in this setting Friday night. Speaking of lacking command, the Rockies Jon Gray was a little "off" with his in his first start this season. That spells trouble here as he faces a Padres lineup "feeling it" after last night's 12-7 10th inning win at San Francisco. The Padres have scored an average of 6 runs per game this season while the Rockies enter this game on a 4-game winning streak and averaged 5 runs per game in those 4 victories and they were all on the road. Colorado should score even better here at home but the surging Padres lineup should answer them run for run as well. The result here is a high-scoring slugfest. 10* OVER the total in Colorado
