Padres 2, Rockies 0: Colorado Again Unable to Capitalize on Promising Start from a Rookie Pitcher

No! Don't touch HIM! He'll ruin you!

For the second straight day at Coors Field, the Rockies received an encouraging outing from a guy who figures to be a key part of their rotation in the future. And, for the second straight day, they were unable to make the most of the situation. Today it was Drew Pomeranz who pitched well enough to get a W, and it was Kip Wells who kept the Rockies from getting it.

Despite struggling with command just a bit at times, Pomeranz was very good in his first big league game since early-May. He only struck out one batter and walked three, but he allowed just two hits and induced 11 groundball outs. He also only allowed one run in his six innings of work, and it was unearned. However, the Rockies' offense was unable to get anything going against Wells whatsoever, and the end result was another embarrassing shutout against another C or D-grade starter.

Rex Brothers allowed the Padres to tack on another run in the seventh, but Matt Belisle, Matt Reynolds, and Josh Roenicke kept it a two-run game. However, the Rockies were unable to come through against Wells, who spun seven shutout innings, while Luke Gregerson and Huston Street kept the Rockies off the board in the eighth and ninth.

Dexter Fowler had two hits, including his NL-leading ninth triple, to pace what little offense the Rockies had with their All-Star left fielder on the bench.
