A six-game win streak to heart breaking losses to a split with the San Diego Padres for the most recent set.
Only two games with the (16-27) Padres but the Rockies managed to split with them anyway. Monday’s game was a win. Tuesday’s game was inexplicably a shut out.
Any given day. That’s what people say. When things happen that shouldn’t happen. Any given day. So, any given day was Tuesday for the Rockies, apparently.
Both games were at beautiful Petco Park in San Diego. Let’s take a closer look at Monday first. The Colorado Rockies started Tyler Anderson (LHP #44 3-1 4.30 ERA 43 K) who has been a solid choice save his last home start against the Angels where control was a problem. The Padres go to guy for the start was rookie left-hander Joey Lucchesi (LHP #37 3-2 3.23 ERA 48 K) who has shown a lot of promise against the Rockies previously. Particularly at his home park of Petco Field. Anderson pitched 5.2 innings and Lucchesi five, Anderson allowed seven hits, Lucchesi six, Anderson gave up four runs and Lucchesi three. The differences are small but present and would continue past here for a final score of 6-4 in favor of the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies struggled too much with a San Diego team of this caliber
