Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after an entire year of watching baseball from anywhere other than the ballpark. The occasional memory refresher can come in handy. Here’s a reminder of what we may have missed while most of us were still staying at home.
The Padres (53-38) defeated the Colorado Rockies (38-51) in the first game of three at Petco Park by a score of 4-2. Reiss Knehr (0-0, 4.91) allowed two runs on three hits and four walks with three strikeouts in three and two-thirds innings while making his Major League debut. Elias Diaz drew a bases-loaded walk allowing Trevor Story to score in the second inning. Chris Owings scored on Kyle Freeland‘s double in the third inning.
Freeland (1-3, 5.48) gave up three runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts in five innings. Jake Cronenworth scored on a single by Trent Grisham in the fourth inning. Cronenworth scored on a Grisham ground out and Wil Myers doubled to drive in Manny Machado in the sixth inning. Machado singled in the seventh inning to drive in Tommy Pham.
