It’s been a sluggish road trip for the Colorado Rockies but in the final game, they found themselves with a 7-3 victory over the San Diego Padres, earning a four-game series split.
Kyle Freeland was not his typical self but somehow managed a more than respectable final line. He began with a lack of command and struggled to miss bats all day but he battled and refused to give in, scratching out six innings, giving up three runs.
The Rockies took an early lead by manufacturing a run in the top of the first. Charlie Blackmon swung at the very first pitch of the game pulling one to right field for a double. DJ LeMahieu hit a groundball to the right side to move him to third and Nolan Arenado lifted one to right for a sac fly.
