Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after an afternoon at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (5-5) scored more runs than the Colorado Rockies (6-4) yesterday, 6-0, at Coors Field.
Zach Lee (1-0, 0.00) started in place of Luis Perdomo (0-0, 8.44), who was placed on the disabled list with shoulder issues. Lee shutout the Rockies over five and one-third innings on two hits and four walks with three strikeouts. Jose Torres, Ryan Buchter, Jake Esch, and Brandon Maurer combined over the final three and two-thirds innings to finish the shutout on one hit (Buchter) and two walks (Esch) with four more strikeouts.
Kyle Freeland (1-1, 5.91) gave up all six runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out two. Wil Myers drove in Manuel Margot with a double in the first inning, then scored on Yangervis Solarte‘s single, and Ryan Schimpf hit a two-run home run. In the fifth inning, Hunter Renfroe singled to score Myers and Schimpf drove in Solarte with a sacrifice fly.
The Padres travel to Atlanta for the opening of SunTrust Park to take on the Atlanta Braves (1-6) for four games starting tomorrow at 4:35pm PDT. Jhoulys Chacin (1-1, 8.10) takes the mound tomorrow with Julio Teheran (0-0, 0.00) starting for the Braves.
