Rockies Drop 5th Straight, Lose 3-1 at San Diego

So far the month of May has not been kind to the Colorado Rockies (12-17), who dropped their fifth straight game last night, losing 3-1 to the San Diego Padres (11-20) at Petco Park. Colorado will try to avoid being swept for a second consecutive series this afternoon at 1:35 MT (TV: none).

Right-hander Alex White showed that it was possible for a Rockies pitcher to go beyond the early innings of a game on Tuesday night. His 6 1/3 innings against the Padres at Petco Park were the most for a Rockies starter in six games.

A Rockies offense that put up runs, but had no help from its pitching while going 3-6 in the Rockies’ most recent homestand, had its second straight anemic performance to begin an eight-game swing within the National League West.

Official: Tuesday’s Box Score.

“It’s tough,” Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez said. “Offensively, we were really good at home and we didn’t get any pitching. Now, it’s tough for us to create runs and our pitching has stepped up. We’ve got to get those two things together, pitching and hitting.”

The Rockies managed nine hits, three by shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, but only Todd Helton’s two-out single in the first accounted for a run.

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.
