The San Diego Padres will host the Colorado Rockies at Petco Park over the weekend for a three-game set.

For the final time this season, the Colorado Rockies will face the San Diego Padres in a three-game set over the weekend at Petco Park. San Diego enters the series on a high, hoping to push themselves to over .500 soon with solid form. They have won seven of their last eight games and even hold a slight chance at a playoff berth after sweeping the St. Louis Cardinals.

Colorado hasn't been quite as lucky, having lost eight of their last 10 after having a decent month of August. They are 10 losses away from tying the worst season in franchise history and heading into San Diego won't make it easy to avoid some of those losses. The Padres have won 21 of their last 27 at Petco Park.

Tyler Chatwood (4-4, 5.32 ERA) will get the game one start for the Rockies, taking on Andrew Cashner (3-3, 3.46 ERA). It will be the first start against the opposite team for both pitchers, though both have made relief appearances in the past.

The game will be at Petco Park at 8:05 p.m. MT.
