Rockies Vs. Padres Final Score: Drew Pomeranz Injured As Colorado Loses, 3-2

The Colorado Rockies lost a 3-2 decision in Petco Park against the San Diego Padres on Monday night. It was the start of a three-game series and the fourth-straight loss for the Rockies.

Rockies starter Drew Pomeranz was able to pitch the first three innings as a result of bruised right leg injury. In the second inning, Padres starter Edinson Volquez hit a liner up the middle that squarely hit Pomeranz. Though the young lefty was able to stay in the game for the remainder of the inning and hit a home run in the top half of the third inning, the bottom of the third inning was his last time on the mound in the game. Pomeranz allowed three runs on five hits and three walks.

Volquez kept the Rockies off balance for most of the night. Beside the Pomeranz home run, Volquez allowed the other run on a Carlos Gonzalez broken-bat single in the sixth inning. After walking Troy Tulowitzki right after that run-scoring play, Volquez left the game with 5.1 innings pitched, two runs allowed and five strikes outs.

Four Padres relievers managed to keep the Rockies off the base paths for the remainder of the game.

The Rockies (12-16, 4-6 away) will turn to Alex White for Tuesday's contest.
