Rockies kick off homestand vs. Padres (Jul 17, 2017)

DENVER — Coming off a much-needed road win over the New York Mets, the Colorado Rockies begin a three-game series Monday against the San Diego Padres, the start of a seven-game homestand.

The Rockies were outscored 23-5 while losing the first two games to the Mets, with Colorado’s starters combining to pitch 2 1/3 innings while allowing 12 runs. However, the Rockies packed seven runs into the first two innings Sunday and averted a sweep with a 13-4 win.

It was their highest run total of the season and the third-most runs they have scored in a road game since 2008.
