Rockies 8, Padres 4: Bombs can’t stop Rocks

Rockies 8, Padres 4: Bombs can’t stop Rocks

Three home runs weren’t enough to slow down Colorado’s wild card run. Another season at Petco Park has come to an end, and while that’s always a sad occasion, today was sadder than usual. While the Padres bats looked pretty good today, launching three home runs and three doubles, they couldn’t overcome some sloppy defense and rough pitching. The Friars did their best to make the last week of the season interesting, but the Rockies are leaving San Diego with a two game lead for the second wild card spot. Colorado opened the game with a trio of singles off Luis Perdomo to score...

Rockies bolster Wild Card chances with 8-4 victory over Padres

The Rockies magic number is down to 5 The Rockies found their bats and the bullpen was nails in the club’s 7-4 win over the Padres Sunday afternoon. The win reduced their magic number to five. The game was closer than the final score suggests. The Rockies scored a run in the first inning, which was pretty uncharacteristic of play lately, but the Padres took the lead back in the bottom half of the inning. The Rockies tied it in the second and took the lead with two more runs in the third. Another run in the sixth gave the Rockies a 5-2 lead, but the Padres scored two in the bottom half of...

Actually I’m laughing

This season is totally funny to me. You’re the one that’s mad. Clayton Kershaw shut the Giants down again and it’s funny. I think it’s funny. I’m laughing. Kershaw didn’t have his dominant stuff, and it seems weird to say that about a game in which he pitched 8 innings, gave up 1 run, struck out 6, and walked no one, but it’s true. He wasn’t missing bats like he usually does and he didn’t make the Giants look like a team that has just been called up en masse from AA like he usually does. He gave up 8 hits in 8 innings, which by Kershaw-Giants standards means he was...

Colorado Rockies: putting the anemic offense in perspective

Luis Perdomo will take the mound opposite German Marquez as the Friars try to hold on for the series win. Perdomo is coming off a winning decision against the playoff-bound Diamondbacks.

Giants beat Dodgers, 2-1

The game ended when Yasiel Puig didn’t slide, and it’s as funny as it sounds. I would like to invite you to close your eyes and pretend that the Giants weren’t awful this year and that this meant something. In this world, a win when Bumgarner was Bumgarner isn’t an anomaly; it’s the natural course of events. Gorkys Hernandez getting on base and scoring runs isn’t a fluke; he’s the Andres Torres of 2017. The bullpen is calm and efficient because it always is, silly. All of the players you know and love on the Giants are better at their jobs than they were in the alternate...

Padres 5, Rockies 0: You’re welcome, Brewers.

Padres 5, Rockies 0: You’re welcome, Brewers.

The Friars have helped put the Brew Crew a game away from the playoffs. The Brewers really need to send Jhoulys Chacin a gift basket, because his dominant outing against the Rockies have narrowed the gap in the National League wild card race to just one game. Chacin utterly flummoxed the Colorado lineup, giving up just one hit in six scoreless innings of work. Meanwhile, the Padres chased Chad Bettis from the game in under five innings. Bettis wasn’t great for the first four innings, but he was going frame-to-scoreless-frame against Chacin. In the fifth, he made one too many mistakes....

Rockies shut out in 5-0 loss to Padres

Almost every Rockies position player reached base, none reached home plate. The Colorado Rockies were shut out 5-0 by ex-Rockies ace Jhoulys Chacin and the San Diego Padres. Anyone who tells you the Rockies offense hasn’t been a problem doesn’t know a problem when they see it. Forget the Dodgers, the Diamondbacks, the Brewers and the Cardinals for a second, if you can. Perhaps it is the playoff pressure for a young team, but the offensive struggles have been a recurring theme all year, even when the team was winning yet manager Bud Black was noting the offense wasn’t clicking on all...
