In the finale, the Padres have not announced an official starter. It could be Tyson Ross (13-14, 2.81) if he is feeling healthy. He would pitch against the rookie Yohan Flande (0-5, 4.91 ERA). Flande is yet to notch his first major league win. His last start against the Padres was a loss. He pitched well, going 6 innings and only allowing 2 runs. He has been in and out of the bullpen this year, serving as a spot starter at times. This would be his 10th start of the year.
Justin Morneau has been a key addition to the Rockies this year. In 130 games, he has hit 16 home runs and leads the team with 79 RBI. He also has 31 doubles. He is hitting .371 in his last 10 games. In his last appearance against the Padres, he went 2-for-3 with a walk. He is hitting .423 against the Padres this season.
