Stults pitched against the Rockies exactly one year ago today (at Petco Park). The result? A hard-fought and inspiring 122-pitch complete game resulting in a win that snapped a ten-game losing streak for our Padres. Hopefully these gifs from the final out of that night will send positive vibes toward Coors Field and bring Stultsy some luck today. LET'S WIN THIS SERIES!
