Rockies' Antonio Senzatela gets 1st win, to take ball to mom's grave

Rockies' Antonio Senzatela gets 1st win, to take ball to mom's grave

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman was the first to hit for the cycle last season but didn't achieve the feat until June. - Oakland starter Jharel Cotton kept getting interrupted during his warmups Monday, first by Melissa Ethridge rocking out the National Anthem, then by a flyover from a B2 bomber, and finally by an emotional tribute to the late Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura.

Third inning: Myers came through with RBI double to left field.

Myers has batted.382 with three home runs this season.

Myers singled in the first, doubled in the third and homered in the sixth to help the Padres win for the third time in four games. Sure enough, he tripled.

What's perhaps as incredible, is the first one happened just two years ago when former Padre - and current Atlanta Brave - Matt Kemp hit for one (also at Coors Field). Margot came through with a one-out infield single, just barely beating a barehanded attempt from Nolan Arenado, and he moved to third on a single up the middle by Travis Jankowski that almost turned into a double play.

"I was screaming 'three, '" Padres manager Andy Green said.

Hunter Renfroe hit a two-run homer for the Padres, who got a superb spot start by Jarred Cosart followed by fine relief work as they evened their record at 4-4 with their third win in the past four games.

"I was screaming 'three, '" Green said. The veteran minimized the damage against him to solo home runs from Carlos Gonzalez and Charlie Blackmon. Last year, he finally lived up to his mega-prospect billing by hitting.259/.336/.461 with 28 bombs, 94 RBI, 99 runs scored and 28 stolen bases, almost joining the exclusive 30-homer, 30-steal club.

"I nearly fell. I was trying too hard, I think", he said.

Chatwood (0-2), who was 4-8 with a 6.12 ERA at Coors Field a year ago, allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Padres: RHP Jered Weaver (0-1, 7.20 ERA) will make his second start for San Diego.

The Padres (3-4) dropped three of four at Dodger Stadium to open the season but began their home season by winning two of three from the San Francisco Giants.

All of Colorado's offense came from the long ball in the win. In the sixth, Blackmon belted Weaver's 78 miles per hour slider into the fountains beyond the center-field wall, tying the game 2-2.

Luis Perdomo was supposed to pitch in today's rubber match, but last night he was scratched from his scheduled start and today he will be placed on the 10-day disabled list.
