Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an afternoon in the pub, trying to find the one TV tuned to the Padres game in the seemingly endless sea of football games and Derek Jeter Day at Yankee Stadium.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.  And squinting.

The Padres (66-76) were shut out 6-0 by the Colorado Rockies (59-84).  In Denver.  For the second time in three games.  In Denver.  In the final game of what became a three-game sweep.

Seriously.  That happened.

Did I mention this all took place in Denver?

Tyson Ross (13-13, 2.66) took the loss after giving up three runs over five and two-thirds innings on seven hits and four walks with seven strikeouts.  Jackson Williams took Ross deep for his first Major League home run with two men on in the second inning.  After that, Ross settled down.

But, the Padres offense was shut down by Franklin Morales (6-7, 5.21), who shut out the Friars over his six innings while giving up just four hits and two walks with six strikeouts.

Robbie Erlin came in to relieve Alex Torres, who got the final out of the sixth inning for Ross.  Erlin gave up the other three Rockies runs on five hits and no walks in the final two innings.  Nolan Arenado had a two-run home run in the seventh inning off of Erlin.

The Friars travel to Los Angeles to face the Dodgers for three games at Dodger Stadium.  Odrisamer Despaigne (3-5, 3.06) goes against Clayton Kershaw (17-3, 1.70) in the first game tonight at 7:10 pm PDT.
