The Padres (35-37) scored more runs than the Colorado Rockies (37-34), 14-13, in the finale of their four-game series at Coors Field. Nick Margevicius (2-6, 6.41) lasted just one and a third innings, giving up nine runs on eleven hits and a walk with one strikeout. In the first inning, Charlie Blackmon led off with a solo home run, Ian Desmond hit a two-run double, Ryan McMahon reached on a run-scoring fielder’s choice, Chris Iannetta hit an RBI single, Peter Lambert’s single scored a run, and Blackmon came up again to hit a run-scoring single. In the second inning, McMahon hit an RBI single, Raimel Tapia’s single scored one, and Lambert hit another run-scoring single. Trevor Story hit a solo home run in the fifth inning. McMahon & Tapia doubled back-to-back to drive in two runs and Blackmon hit an RBI single in the sixth inning.
Lambert (2-0, 6.00) allowed eight runs on nine hits and no walks with three strikeouts in three innings. Fernando Tatis Jr. scored on Eric Hosmer’s single and Hunter Renfroe hit a two-run home run in the first inning. Tatis Jr. drove in Manuel Margot with a double and scored on Hosmer’s ground out in the second inning. In the third inning, Greg Garcia tripled to drive in Renfroe & Wil Myers and scored on a Luis Perdomo ground out. Tatis Jr. scored on Manny Machado’s ground out and Renfroe hit a solo home run in the seventh inning. Myers singled to drive in Hosmer, Garcia hit his second triple to score Machado & Myers, the Rockies intentionally walked both Austin Allen & Josh Naylor to load the bases to bring up pinch-hitter Matt Strahm, who worked a bases-loaded walk to bring Garcia home.
If all of that wasn’t crazy enough, there were also two separate delays in the game. The first 15-minute one came in the first inning when a irrigation pipe started gushing along the first base side warning track. The second came before the sixth inning, when play was stopped for a 43-minute weather delay.
