(MLB) San Diego vs. Colorado, 08/16/2021 8:40 PM, Score: 5 - 6
Money Line: -131.00 San Diego (Away)
Result: Loss
I like the San Diego Padres to defeat the Colorado rockies on Monday night. San Diego has broken their 4 game slump with a big 8-2 victory against the Diamondbacks on Sunday. Ryan Weathers (4-5, 4.72 ERA) will be starting for the Padres and he has been struggling lately. He has been credited with the loss in his last 3 straight starts and the team has lost the last 5 games in a row that he has made an appearance in. He has really been blown up in his last 3 starts allowing 6+ earned runs in each game. I expect him to have a must needed bounce back in this one. The Rockies have put together just 1 win in their last 6 games, allowing 5+ runs scored against them in all 5 of those losses. Antonio Senzatela (2-9, 4.71 ERA) will be starting for the Rockies here and he has not been too good this season. He has been credited with 4 straight losses and has been allowing a lot of runs scored against him when he starts. He has been allowing an average of 3+ earned runs in his last 10 starts, and has cost his team the win in quite a few games this season. Now that the Padres have the taste of winning back in their mouth they should be able to start rolling again. Padres come away with the win here.

T.M. Prediction: 7-5 Padres.
