Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after a Sunday afternoon at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (66-83) scored more runs than the Colorado Rockies (82-68) yesterday, 4-3, in their series finale at Coors Field. The game was delayed for an hour and twenty-three minutes because of rain in the bottom of the fifth inning.
Jhoulys Chacin (12-10, 4.12) allowed three runs on five hits and two walks with four strikeouts over four and a third innings. Carlos Gonzalez scored on single by Gerardo Parra, Parra advanced to second base on an error, and Trevor Story‘s double drove in Nolan Arenado and Parra in the fourth inning but Story was thrown out at third base by Matt Szczur.
Jon Gray (8-4, 3.75) shut the Padres out over five innings, giving up two hits and a walk with seven strikeouts. Yangervis Solarte hit a solo home run in the sixth inning. Carlos Asuaje and Solarte scored on a Hector Sanchez single in the eighth inning. Austin Hedges hit a squeeze bunt and Szczur came home and scored the go-ahead run on an error by Greg Holland in the ninth inning.
The Padres come home to Petco Park for three games against the Arizona Diamondbacks (87-63) starting tonight at 7:10pm PDT. Luis Perdomo (7-10, 4.61) starts tonight against Patrick Corbin (14-12, 4.06).
