The Padres (66-76) were swept right out of the Mile High City by the last-place Rockies (59-84). This was a very frustrating series as the Padres offense never could find a rhythm. The Rockies out-scored San Diego 16-6 in the three games. This marks the first time since early June that the Padres have suffered a sweep, when they lost all 3 games to the Phillies in Philadelphia, ironically, another last place team.
The Padres offense was nearly non-existent for much of the series. The team hit .202 in the 3 games and only scoring runs in one of them. They were shut out in Friday and Sunday’s losses. If an offense player of the series had to be selected, it would be Jedd Gyorko. He had 4 hits, 2 RBI and 2 walks, including a two doubles. For the Rockies, Nolan Arenado was the star of the series. He had a hit in each game with two home runs and 3 RBI.
