Padres' Ross coming off excellent start vs. Diamondbacks
Tyson Ross allowed one earned run, one hit and three walks with 10 strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings in a no-decision Friday in Arizona. Ross was on fire, taking a no-hitter into the eighth inning.
He ran out of gas in the eighth in the 127-pitch outing and was unable to produce the first no-hitter in franchise history. In fact, San Diego is the only active organization without a no-no since their inception. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Tuesday's start in San Francisco.
Rockies' Gray coming off rough outing vs. Cubs
Jon Gray was touched up for seven runs - five earned - and eight hits with three walks and just one strikeout over five innings in a loss against the Rockies on Friday.
Gray had a nightmare outing, throwing just 47 of his 82 pitches for strikes to go along with two wild pitches. After an impressive scoreless outing over seven innings in San Diego on April 4 it has been all downhill. He is 0-3 with a 9.77 ERA across his past three outings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Padres are 6-2 in Ross' last eight road starts but are just 3-7 in his last 10 outings overall.
The Rockies have dropped four of Gray's last five home starts and are 1-5 in his last six outings overall.
Gray's advanced numbers are a little better than his high ERA but the bottom line is that he has not gotten the job done to start the season. He's pitching in a hitter-friendly ballpark against a team that scored seven runs off 10 hits against him earlier this season. I'll roll the dice on the Padres with Ross on the hill.
The Pick: San Diego Padres +130
