The Colorado Rockies come back from a nice four-day break with a three-game series in San Diego against the struggling Padres. 

More from Colorado Rockies News

The Colorado Rockies return from the All Star Break having won four straight games in a series sweep over the Atlanta Braves, before getting four days off for the All Star Game and Home Run Derby (and you bet your behind we enjoyed a few days off, too!).

Well, welcome back now! The Rockies are in San Diego beginning tonight for a three-game set over the weekend. The Padres are having a bad year relative to their expectations coming into the season, so the next two weeks may be even more interesting for them in terms of player movement than for Colorado.

As always, here are your probable pitchers, along with some keys for the Rockies as they look to win a series, and some info on the Padres.
