Padres drop Rockies 13-2 in 5-HR outing

Gotta love the sound of those bats.

MLB: San Diego Padres at Colorado Rockies Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Eric Hosmer opened the game up with a three-run deep shot and Chris Paddack struck out eight in five shutout innings to help the Padres (21-15) overwhelm the Rockies (17-17) 13-2 on Sunday afternoon.

Jake Cronenworth, Trent Grisham, and Fernando Tatis each recorded three hits apiece as part of six different players to record multiple hits on the night.

Aside from a pair of runs scored in the sixth, this game was all Padres from start to finish.

The Friars led 5-0 through the first two innings, thanks in part to Hosmer’s homer and triple by Grisham. The scoring picked up again in the seventh with a two-run home run by Cronenworth. That was then followed by consecutive home runs by Jurickson Profar and Grisham, which gave the Friars double-digit runs for the game. A base hit by Machado and a home run by Josh Naylor finished the scoring for San Diego and presented an insurmountable lead for the Rockies to overcome.

The Rockies were led offensively by 3B Nolan Arenado who went 2-of-3 at the plate with a run scored. Starting pitcher Ryan Castellani pitched just a pair of innings but allowed six hits, five runs, and struck out just two.

The series finale will be tomorrow night at 6:30pm at Coors Field. Righty German Marquez will start on the mound for the Rockies while the Padres have yet to decide on their starter.
