KEY GAME INFORMATION
COLORADO: DENVER (AP) - Justin Morneau wears Larry Walker's old number and is stepping in for Todd Helton.
Just so it's clear, though: He doesn't expect to be the next Walker and certainly isn't trying to make Colorado Rockies fans forget all about Helton, the everyday first baseman in the Mile High City since 1997.
Morneau can only be himself, a slick fielder who's a four-time All-Star and former AL MVP.
That's not too bad, either.
Still, the Rockies wouldn't mind if Morneau channeled a little bit of those two Colorado icons to help them get back to the postseason. But that's a lot of cleats to fill, especially when it comes to Helton, the franchise's leader in virtually every offensive category.
Morneau's goals are more modest: Slide seamlessly into to this potent lineup, one that includes good friend and reigning NL batting champion Michael Cuddyer, along with Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki.
The 32-year-old Morneau knows the comparisons to Helton are inevitable. No. 17 spent 17 seasons in purple pinstripes, endearing himself to the community. The team will honor Helton on Aug. 17 when they retire his number (although Helton's first send-off will be hard to top, when the club gave him a horse in his last home game).
''From the outside looking in, it looks like I'm coming in to replace him,'' said Morneau, who wears No. 33 because of Walker, his boyhood idol. ''But that's not my thought process. My thought process is to just come in and be me and do what I can do.''
Cuddyer thinks Morneau will fit in just fine.
''If you think about the guy you're replacing, you're already not doing yourself a good service,'' said Cuddyer, who was teammates with Morneau in Minnesota. ''He respects (Helton), but he also understands he has to go out there and be himself.''
SAN DIEGO: SAN DIEGO (AP) - It's almost as if last season didn't end for the San Diego Padres.
The Padres go into 2014 trailing the Los Angeles Dodgers and with one of their starting pitchers already having arm trouble.
There had been a general air of optimism surrounding the Padres, who are coming off seasons of 91, 86 and 86 losses. Their rotation has been bolstered, as well as their player payroll.
Then came word late in spring training that newcomer Josh Johnson, penciled in as the No. 3 starter, is expected to be out four to five weeks after straining his right forearm.
That still leaves a projected rotation of Andrew Cashner, Tyson Ross, Ian Kennedy and Eric Stults, with a number of pitchers to choose from to replace Johnson.
''I think we have the talent on the mound, through our 12 guys that are going to make our team, to pitch well,'' manager Bud Black said. ''There's a health component here like all teams. We've got keep our best players on the field.''
The Padres signed Johnson to an $8 million, one-year contact less than two months after he had bone spurs removed from his pitching elbow. He was 2-8 with a 6.20 ERA in 16 appearances last season with Toronto.
When Johnson returns, the Padres hope he and Ian Kennedy can return to their old form.
Kennedy was acquired from division rival Arizona at the trading deadline. He went 4-2 with a 4.24 ERA with San Diego after going 3-8 with a 5.23 ERA in 21 starts with the Diamondbacks. Johnson was an All-Star with the Marlins in 2009 and 2010, and led the NL with a 2.30 ERA in 2010.
The Padres will be tested right away. They open at home Sunday night against the defending NL West champion Dodgers and their $225 million payroll, led by ace Clayton Kershaw, himself a $215 million man. The Dodgers already sit atop the division after sweeping the Diamondbacks in a two-game series in Sydney.

*Rockies-Padres Preview* ========================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

Colorado (7-8) at San Diego (6-8), 6:40 p.m. EDT

The San Diego Padres are on a bit of a roll behind some stellar work on the mound.

Ian Kennedy looks to extend that trend Thursday and help the Padres take three of four from the visiting Colorado Rockies.

San Diego (7-8) has won five of seven since beginning the season 2-6, lowering its team ERA to 2.89 during its hot stretch. Andrew Cashner gave up one earned run in 7 1-3 innings of Wednesday's 4-2 victory.

The Padres have allowed three earned runs or fewer in seven of their last eight.

Chris Denorfia drove in two runs and Tommy Medica added a solo shot for the Padres, who were without Chase Headley because of a strained right biceps. Alexi Amarista started at third in place of Headley, who is hitting just .160 in 13 games.

Headley suffered the injury in the batting cage prior to Tuesday's contest, and it's unclear when he'll be able to return.

"It bothered him as the day went on and bothered him after the game and then again (Wednesday) morning," manager Bud Black told the team's official website. "Hopefully he responds well to treatment and gets back out there."

Kennedy (1-2, 4.24 ERA) will try to help the Padres stay on track with or without Headley. He gave up four runs and eight hits through six innings of a 6-2 loss to Detroit on Saturday, though catcher Yasmani Grandal felt Kennedy pitched well.

The right-hander gave up each run in the first four innings before settling down.

"He threw a great game," Grandal said. "He was attacking the strike zone, and he was using his changeup way better."

Kennedy has been solid against Colorado, going 3-2 with a 2.25 ERA over his last eight starts. Carlos Gonzalez has had trouble in his career against Kennedy, going 4 for 29 (.138) with 13 strikeouts.

Gonzalez went 1 for 4 on Wednesday and is 2 for 20 over his last five after hitting .375 during a 10-game hitting streak to start the season.

Justin Morneau went 3 for 3 with a homer and a sacrifice fly for the Rockies (7-9), who have dropped four of six.

"You don't get a lot of opportunities against a guy like (Cashner)," manager Walt Weiss said. "You hope somebody gets a big hit or you get one to drop when you do get some baserunners."

Colorado will turn to Franklin Morales to help salvage a split in the series.

After giving up nine runs in 12 innings over his first two starts, Morales (0-1, 6.39) came out of the bullpen and pitched a scoreless inning in Colorado's 5-4, 10-inning loss to San Francisco on Sunday.

Morales had a strong spring, but due to his bullpen experience became the odd man out when Tyler Chatwood returned to the rotation.

The left-hander made his only career start against the Padres in 2007, and he's compiled a 6.28 ERA in 14 relief appearances against them since.

Colorado had dropped five of the last six meetings, all in San Diego.
