Sunday was once again all Rockies and no Padres offense. Jackson Williams delivered a crushing blow in the 2nd, hitting a three-run home run to put the Rockies up 3-0, his first of his career. That was really all starting pitcher Franklin Morales needed, as he pitched 6 scoreless innings while striking out 6 and only allowing 4 hits.

Tyson Ross’ streak of 14 consecutive quality starts was snapped on in the 6-0 loss. He didn’t get out of the 6th inning, allowing 3 runs and walking 4. He did have 7 strikeouts but had to leave in the 6th with 116 pitches, an out shy of continuing his franchise-record long streak. The Rockies eventually made it 6-0 when Robbie Erlin finally returned to the mound for San Diego. He allowed 3 runs in two innings. San Diego only managed to get 6 hits in the ballgame. Sunday marked the second time in the weekend that the Padres were shutout. The loss was Ross’ 13th. The only Padre who had a good game was Gyorko, with 2 hits, including a double and a walk.
