I stayed up way too late finishing Bioshock Infinite last night, so I nodded off a few times during this game, and what stuck with me the most was Dick Enberg and Kelly Crull talking about similarities between baseball and tennis. Dick is probably regretting giving up Wimbledon.
Edinson Volquez got off to a shaky start, giving up a two run blast to Dexter Fowler and a pair of doubles to Carlos Gonzalez and Reid Brignac. It was ugly, but three runs on the moon is nothing, right?
Jedd Gyorko is serious about his Rookie of the Year campaign. He plays second. He plays third. He scores the Padres' lone run of the game on a Chris Denorfia double. He probably does the dishes and vacuums, too. Ladies.
Volquez really settled down after the first, throwing four scoreless frames. He got unlucky at the end of the sixth as a soft fly ball off the bat of Jonathan Herrera fell in No Man's Land, scoring Jordan Pacheco from third.
With Joe Thatcher taking over from Volquez, what could possibly go wrong? Everything, mostly. Thatcher gave up a double and a walk before Bud Black handed the reigns over to Anthony Bass. He promptly served up a three run bomb to Wilin Rosario.
The Rockies piled on in their last at bats with some help from former Padre Yorvit Torrealba, who knocked in the ninth and final run for the home team.
