While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 140 (SD at COL)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub.  Then on the way home you abandon the car you’re driving in the middle of the highway and start walking down the double yellow line before the police come and take you to jail.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were sitting in a holding cell.

The Padres (66-74) were shut out 3-0 by the Colorado Rockies (57-84) last night in Coors Field in Denver.  Eric Stults (6-16, 4.55) surrendered all three Rockies’ runs, two on solo home runs by Drew Stubbs in the first and Nolan Arenado in the sixth.

Tyler Matzek (5-9, 4.32) pitched a three-hit complete game with one walk and six strikeouts for the Rockies.  Three of the four Padres to reach base actually got into scoring position, only to be stranded.  It was like watching the April/May Padres again.

Tonight at 5:10 pm PDT Joe Wieland (0-0, 0.00) makes his first start since the 2012 season after going under the knife for elbow ligament replacement surgery.  The Rockies will have the newly extended Jorge De La Rosa (13-10, 4.26) starting.
