Strong finish on the road
The Padres completed the three-game sweep of the Rockies this afternoon with a 4-0 win in Denver. The sweep was the Padres fifth of the year, third on the road and first since taking a four-game set from the Marlins in August.
Over the three games in Colorado, the Padres pitching staff dominated the Rockies bats. The Friars allowed just three runs over the series, silencing the Colorado offense to the tune of 14-for-92 (.152) at the plate, including Monday’s one-hitter. The win is the Padres fifth in their last six games, giving them some momentum as they head home for six games to finish the season.
Allowing three runs over a three-game series at Coors Field is an impressive feat. So impressive, in fact, that no team has ever held the Rockies to three-or-fewer runs in a series of at least three games. The Rockies have been limited to four runs in a three-game series at home twice (2005 and 2008).
