Colorado picked up a 4-3 road victory versus the Padres on Friday night and moved to within 6 1/2 games of the division lead. The Rockies had dropped three in a row heading into this weekend series, but the club has had great success against San Diego this season. “What we talked about at the beginning of the season was winning the division,” shortstop Troy Tulowitzki said. “That’s what gets you into the playoffs the easiest way.” The team has been led offensively by outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, who is riding an 11-game hitting streak and is hitting .500 with six home runs and 14 RBIs over that stretch. The team also remains confident heading into the final two games of the series due to a 33-29 all-time mark at Petco Park. Colorado is 29-24 against the division this season (+140) and the total is 20-32 O/U in those contests.
Colorado and San Francisco play the final game of a three-game series on Wednesday night, with the home team looking to avoid being swept for just the second time at AT&T Park.
