The Colorado Rockies (12-16) have dropped four in a row, including last night’s 3-2 loss to the San Diego Padres (10-20) in Petco Park. Starting Rockies pitcher Drew Pomeranz hit his first Major League home run before being hit by a line drive, forcing him to leave the game in the third inning. The second game of the series is tonight at 8:05 MT (TV: Root Sports).

The Rockies’ bullpen threw five scoreless innings, including three by Josh Roenicke, who struck out two against two hits and two walks. Matt Belisle and Rex Brothers combined for 1 2/3 spotless innings. Somehow, the Rockies are in decent shape bullpen-wise, even though no starter has gone past five innings in the last six games.

The three innings tied a career high for Roenicke.

“I didn’t throw many pitches in the first inning, and [Tracy] asked me how I felt after the second inning,” Roenicke said. “I was fine, so I went from there, trying to keep it close.”

Official: Monday’s Box Score.

But the offense did little against Volquez (1-2), who threw just 59 strikes on 110 pitches over 5 1/3 innings. He gave up five hits and walked four, but also struck out five. Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, who had two of the hits, said Rockies hitters had all kinds of issues gaining timing.

Tickets are available for the Rockies next home game at Coors Field on Wednesday, May 16th vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks, and can be purchased by calling (800) 388-ROCK, or click here.
