Rockies 10, Padres 7: Antonio Senzatela sharp, offense gives plenty of run support

The win wraps up a 4-4 home stand for the Rockies

The Rockies beat the Padres 10-7 at Coors Field on Sunday, giving them the series win against San Diego.

Antonio Senzatela effective

The Rockies got a solid start from Antonio Senzatela, who threw 623 innings of three run baseball. He struck out seven batters and walked two. Even better, Senzatela didn’t give up a home run! That’s a welcome development.

Hits, hits everywhere

Only two position player starters didn’t get a hit for the Rockies. Nolan Arenado didn’t get one, but he took two intentional walks. Mark Reynolds didn’t get one either. His batting average has fallen to .181, and his slugging is under .400. Reynolds may be close to his expiration date.

Enough about the guys who didn’t get a hit though. Charlie Blackmon went deep twice, and Raimel Tapia had three hits, two for extra bases. Including this beauty:

Keep that man in the lineup.

Oh no

The game wasn’t as close as the final score indicates. The Rockies had a 10-3 lead heading into the ninth inning, when they brought in Seunghwan Oh to close it out. He recorded two outs, but he also allowed three singles and a three run home run to Franmil Reyes. That cut the Rockies lead down to three, which forced them to bring Scott Oberg in to record the final out. The outing raised Oh’s ERA to 10.05 over his 1413 innings pitched this season.

Up next

The win wraps up a 4-4 home stand that saw several offensive explosions, especially at the end. The Rockies have scored 10 or more runs in three out of their past four games. They added two more taco’s games to that tally. There’s a big challenge coming up after Monday’s day off though. The Rockies start a tough eight game road trip on Tuesday that will take them to Boston, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh. It’s series like these that seem to always get “Coors hangover” trending. Let’s see if the bats can stay hot out east.
