Wil Myers hits for cycle in Padres win

San Diego Padres vs Colorado Rockies Live Streaming

Colorado Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood will have his first opportunity Monday to atone for his 2016 missteps at Coors Field.

Third inning: Myers came through with RBI double to left field. He later came up in the sixth inning, in which he sent the ball over the right field wall for a home run. Myers only needed four at bats to become the second Padre in history to hit for the cycle (teammate Matt Kemp did it in 2015, also against Colorado at Coors Field) and drove in two runs to lift the Padres to 4-4 this season. Sure enough, he tripled.

Myers, who hit for the Padres' second cycle Monday, tripled with one out in the fourth.

When it comes to individual baseball feats that casual fans enjoy, the Padres haven't ever thrown a no-hitter, either. "I just thought the prudent path was to slow it down for one start and give that start to Jarred Cosart".

Kyle Freeland will make his encore Tuesday when he starts for the Colorado Rockies against the San Diego Padres.

"We had a lot of trouble laying off the high fastball", Padres manager Andy Green explained. Arenado's, off Miguel Diaz in the seventh, was his third of the year.

"His presence in our clubhouse gives all three of those guys confidence they can succeed", Green said.

Colorado, still waiting for its highly-touted offense to heat up, produced only four hits, but three of them were solo homers by Carlos Gonzalez, Charlie Blackmon and Arenado. 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. He kept the Dodgers to only four hits and two walks while striking out six batters en route to a win. He finished with six strikeouts in Colorado's 2-1 win. His fWAR of 3.8 was eighth-best among qualified MLB first basemen last season, and his OPS+ of 113 (league average is 100) helped him make his first All-Star team. "I'm just trying to feel my way through instead of just trying to execute the pitches and execute the scouting report". The Padres' first baseman made it 2-0 in the sixth with a leadoff homer off Chatwood.

Pineda takes ideal game into 7th; Yanks beat Rays 8-1 NEW YORK - As Michael Pineda threw strike after strike and got out after out, the excitement of the home opener crowd at Yankee Stadium increased and its noise-level rose. Zach Lee will get the start in place of the injured Luis Perdomo for San Diego.
