Rockies End 5 Game Skid with 6-2 Win Over Padres

Left-hander Christian Friedrich made his Major League debut striking out seven in six innings, leading the Colorado Rockies (13-17) to a 6-2 win over the San Diego Padres (11-21) yesterday afternoon at Petco Park. After taking today off, the Rockies continue their road trip tomorrow night against the Dodgers (19-11) in Los Angeles at 8:10 MT (TV: none).

The Rockies took advantage of strong work from their starter. Friedrich’s outing came a day after Alex White held the Padres to two runs in 6 1/3 innings of a 3-2 loss. Both hurlers were called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs earlier this week. The starts by White and Friedrich gave the club 13 starts of six or more innings in its first 30 games. The Rockies are 9-4 in those games.

Official: Wednesday’s Box Score.

In avoiding being swept in a three-game set, and in preventing the Padres from completing their first sweep of the season, the Rockies got odd run-scoring doubles from Jason Giambi (for one run in the fourth) and Wilin Rosario (two runs in the sixth). In both cases, the ball hit the extreme top of the outfield fence, and the umpiring crew went to replay to see if they were actually home runs.

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.
