Well, the Padres have had a lot of fun at Coors Field the past couple of years. Unfortunately, their last trip for the 2016 season wasn’t all that fun. The Rockies performed a comeback feat, utterly shut the Padres down, and ended the series with a decisive win. The sweep came off the back of the Friars sweeping the second-in-the-NL West Giants.
Jarred Cosart collected his fourth starting loss as a pitcher for San Diego. He almost made it a complete 4 innings, but in the 4th he was punched around and gave the Rockies their go-ahead runs. Cosart allowed 5 hits, one of them a 2-run home run, for a total of 5 credited earned runs. He also walked in one of those runs, and walked 3 others during his start.
Jose Dominguez gave up a 2-run RBI single in his relief of Cosart. He also allowed a lone run from an RBI-single in the 6th inning.
The Padres tried chipping away at the lead the Rockies built up. Adam Rosales had started the game’s scoring with his 10th home run of the season. In the top of the 6th Wil Myers hit his 26th double, knocking in Travis Jankowski and Jon Jay in the process.
The 3 runs the Padres mustered together didn’t stack up against the lead that Cosart allowed, and the Padres took the sweep hard. They’ll be returning to Petco for a homestand, and will try to avoid their 90th loss as best as they can.
