Padres 6, Rockies 1; ladies and gents, your last place Rockies

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

There is no escape. There is no respite. The beat goes on.

The worst stretch of baseball I have ever witnessed continued tonight as the Rockies fell once again to the Padres, 6-1. At this point there's not rhyme or reason to this endless misery; it's a constant horror show of failure. With tonight's loss, the Rockies have fallen a half game behind the Diamondbacks to become the cellar dwellers of the NL West. That's it. The final indignity.

Drew Stubbs hit a solo home run. Okay, that's all the good stuff out of the way, let's talk about the bad stuff.

Tyler Matzek walked as many men (four) as he struck out, including a four pitch walk of the pitcher to lead off the seventh inning, which is just ridiculous. That's what opened the flood gates for the Padres, a completely hapless offensive team until now.

Matzek's final line was six plus innings allowing five runs on eight hits with the aforementioned four walks. That's two base runners per inning. Against the Padres. Blergg.

The offense, at home, managed just six hits against Padre pitching. What an inept performance. Is Ian Kennedy really that good? I suspect he isn't, but when the Rockies are rolling, they make anyone look like Cy Young.

It's time. It really is. Burn it all down. Trade everyone not making the league minimum. Clean house. This has gone on long enough.
