While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 43 (SD at COL)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (20-23) lost 3-1 to the Colorado Rockies (24-19) last night in Denver.  Rockies’ starter Jorge De La Rosa took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, when Chris Denorfia hit a leadoff triple off the right field wall.  However, the next three batters failed to drive Denorfia in that inning.  Denorfia would eventually score the Padres’ only run in the ninth inning after hitting a double and a scoring on a single by Chase Headley.

Eric Stults pitched very well in his 6 2/3 innings, giving up just 2 runs (1 earned) on 6 hits and a walk with 2 strikeouts.  But the Padres offense let him down once again.

Tonight, the Padres will have Robbie Erlin (2-4, 4.22) take the mound versus the Rockies’ Jordan Lyles (5-0, 2.66) at 5:10 pm PDT from Coors Field.
