Jon Jay reels in a catch in deep center field

Charlie Blackmon tried to start the Rockies' day with an extra base hit to center field, but Jon Jay did his best Willie Mays impression to keep him off the basepaths. It was an important save, since Carlos Gonzalez took James Shields deep later in the inning. Blackmon hit it hard and deep, and Jay had to hustle to reel the ball in. Coors Field is no Polo Grounds, but it's a spacious 415 feet from home plate to the center field wall. Jay's also having a decent day offensively, too. He led off the third inning with a single, went around to third on a single from Cory Spangenberg (with the...

Padres Preview: 04/10 Shields makes the start for Ross

The Padres look to complete the sweep against the Rockies. The Padres will try to make it a sweep today as they conclude their three-game series in Colorado. There will be some lineup changes today, with both Tyson Ross and Yangervis Solarte hitting the DL early this season. Ross, who was scheduled to start today for San Diego, was placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to April 5th, due to shoulder inflammation. Then this morning we heard the official word that third baseman Solarte on the 15-day DL with a strained right hamstring, an injury he sustained during last night's rout of the...

Padres place Yangervis Solarte on disabled list, recall Alexi Amarista from AAA

Another day, another important piece of the team going on the disabled list. Just one day after the Padres announced that ace Tyson Ross will be missing time thanks to inflammation in his pitching shoulder, they placed starting third baseman Yangervis Solarte on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. In his place will be a familiar face: the Little Ninja, Sexi Alexi himself, Alexi Amarista. Solarte's injury occurred yesterday when hitting what looked like it could be a double in the fourth inning of yesterday's big win over Colorado. He made it to first base and left the...

The Padres are addicted to runs

And wins. Runs and wins. It's nothing but good times in the Rocky Mountains. The latest reality of the Padres is that we love scoring runs. Lots and lots of runs. Enough runs to feed a family of 9, and to earn back-to-back wins for the boys in navy blue, white, and gold. San Diego - 16 Colorado - 3 Yet, there's an additional happy part of today's story. Drew Pomeranz has returned to Colorado, this time throwing against his former team. And he threw well. Drew went a healthy 5 innings, giving up only 4 hits and 2 earned runs as a result of a sacrifice fly and a wild pitch. Completely...

Jabari Blash records his first major league hit

After walking in his first major league plate appearance, grounding out in his first official at-bat, going 0-3 with a strikeout in his first start, and grounding into a double play last night, Padres rookie Jabari Blash finally recorded his first base hit in San Diego's fifth game of the year. With one out in the sixth inning, the Padres leading the Rockies 7-2, Blash was called on to pinch-hit for starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz. On the second pitch from Colorado reliever Jason Gurka, Blash hit a long drive to deep left-center field. Dick Enberg started his home run call but unfortunately,...
