San Diego Padres 2, Colorado Rockies 1: So, did Jon Gray drink Jobu's rum?

A dominant outing from the Rockies starter went for naught thanks to an inefficient offense against James Shields and the Padres. Colorado Rockies pitcher Jon Gray put together the best start of his young career, but his offense let him down as the Rockies lost the series opener in San Diego, 2-1. Gray allowed a pair of bloop singles and a two-run double to Matt Kemp to start the...

Scratching and clawing for the tough L

The Friars put up a good fight for a 4-5 loss against a Bum. The Pads hit the road and, unfortunately, couldn't take their sign-stealing security guard with them. Apparently the Coke bottle slide isn't the best of spots for a stable view with your binoculars. Regardless, the 6-game road trip up and down the coast begins. San Francisco is throwing their best this series, and the...
