The Padres and Rockies set a modern-era record by combining for 92 runs in a four-game series, with San Diego pitcher Matt Strahm drawing a pinch-hit, bases-loaded walk in the ninth inning to rally past Colorado 14-13 Sunday.
A four-game series here, it feels like a month, Padres first baseman Eric Hosmer said.
It was just another wacky day at Coors Field, especially in this split series in which the Rockies outscored the Padres 48-44 while the teams combined for 131 hits.
The Rockies brought in starter Jon Gray, who intentionally walked two batters to face Strahm.
Rockies manager Bud Black said he went with Gray – the starter Thursday – because of his usual ability to throw strikes.
