Start time, lineups, and discussion for the series opener against the Padres The Rockies (35-32) look to restart another home winning streak on Thursday night against the Padres (33-35). It would be hard to argue that Jon Gray enjoys facing any team more than the Padres. In 17 career starts he has a 2.70 ERA, 1.006 WHIP, 10.9 K/9 and 6.58 K/BB in 103 1⁄3 innings. His only career complete game shutout came when he struck out a franchise record 16 Padres on September 17, 2016. In his last start against the Padres, he struck out eight over six innings but gave up three runs and got saddled...
