Rockies starter German Marquez's .261 batting average allowed on the road is the lowest in franchise history (minimum 50 innings pitched). Ubaldo Jimenez is the current record-holder with a .281 average allowed in 2011.

Charlie Blackmon's 23 home runs are second among center fielders to 31 hit by Mike Trout. Aaron Hicks of the Yankees has 22, and Odubel Herrera of the Phillies has 21.

All four Padres starting pitchers in this series are rookies. The Padres are third in MLB in starts by rookie pitchers with 50 prior to the Rockies series. The Marlins went into Thursday with 59 and the Rays had a rookie start 55 times.
