The Rockies lost to the Padres in disappointing fashion 7-5 tonight

First, the positive: Jon Gray was strong in his third career start. Gray threw 69 pitches, 50 of which went for strikes, over five innings. He allowed four hits and a run. He didn't walk a batter and struck out five. It was another encouraging outing for the young Rockies pitcher.

The Padres tagged Gray for a run in the first inning off of a couple of singles and a sacrifice fly. The Rockies, however, responded with a run in the bottom of the first. Charlie Blackmon doubled and later scored on a Carlos Gonzalez groundout. In the third inning, the Rockies took the lead, as Nolan Arenado singled in Jon Gray (who walked) and Jose Reyes. The Rockies gave the lead back in a back-and-forth sixth inning. The Padres scored three off of Gonzalez Germen in the top half of the frame. In the bottom half of the sixth, the Rockies took the lead back.

The score remained 5-4 in favor of the Rockies until the ninth inning. It was then that Tommy Kahnle imploded. Derek Norris began the inning with a double. After a single, putting runners on the corners with no outs, Melvin Upton Jr. reached on a throwing error by Nick Hundley that scored Norris to tie the game. The Padres added a single and a sacrifice fly to make the score 7-5.

Padres closer Craig Kimbrel entered in the bottom of the ninth and finished the Rockies off to close out the game.
