Padres on a winning streak!

Another huge game for Matt Kemp (3-5, 2 HRs, 6 RBIs) helped the San Diego Padres offense stay hot, and got the team their second consecutive win, an 16-3 road victory over the Colorado Rockies. Cory Spangenberg also chipped in with a 3-run HR in the 4th inning.

Wil Myers collected his first HR of the season, as well, a solo shot in the 8th inning against former Padres reliever Chad Qualls.

Drew Pomeranz (1-0) delivered a strong performance in Coors Field against the team he made his MLB debut with in 2011, allowing just 2 runs in 5 innings. Newly-claimed LHP Brad Hand made his Padres debut in the 8th, pitching a perfect inning.

The Padres are now 2-3 and hoping to get back to .500 with a series sweep tomorrow at 1:40pm PT. James Shields will take the mound for San Diego in that game after the team placed Tyson Ross on the 15-day DL with shoulder inflammation.

That wasn’t the only injury news of the day, unfortunately. Starting 3B Yangervis Solarte left the game after injuring his leg on an early single. In his place, Adam Rosales went 2-2 with an RBI and a run scored. We’re still waiting on news on Solarte’s injury, but it appeared that it could’ve been hamstring-related.
