The Colorado Rockies are finally back home after a few weeks predominantly on the road, as they take on the San Diego Padres for three games in Denver beginning Friday.

The Colorado Rockies finally return home, after spending the better part of the last few weeks — save one home series against the Seattle Mariners — on the road away from Coors Field.

And while the road hasn’t been particularly kind to the Rockies this year, well, neither has home base.

Typically a team that dominates at home regardless of how well the season is going, the Rockies have struggled this year at Coors, going just 25-29 at home. That’d be uncharacteristic from recent clubs winning well over 50% of their games at home, but it’s the reality of the 2015 Rockies.

Now, they get the struggling San Diego Padres, who have lost seven of their last ten and are now 10.5 games out of first place in the NL West after making insane trades all winter with the hopes of contending quickly. That didn’t happen for the Friars, as they are now set to play out another lost year in their own regard.
