Rockies Recap: Garrett Hampson walks off Padres, Nolan Arenado homers in loss to Giants

23/03/2019, USA, Multi Sports, USA Publications, Article # 28704790

(Split Squad)

Rockies 6, Padres 5
Friday at Salt River Fields, Scottsdale, Ariz.

Giants 6, Rockies 4
Friday at Scottsdale Stadium, Scottsdale, Ariz.

On the mound: Chad Bettis was scratched from his scheduled start against the Padres due to neck tightness, and Harrison Musgrave got the ball in his place. The southpaw gave up one run on three hits while wiffing five through 2 ⅔ innings … Wade Davis yielded a long solo homer to Padres veteran Ian Kinsler in the fifth, and San Diego tacked on two more runs off Bryan Shaw in the sixth … Against the Giants, Jeff Hoffman cruised through three scoreless innings before a derailing four-run fourth that included a two-run bomb by Yangervis Solarte.

At the plate: Nolan Arenado launched his fourth homer of the spring, a solo shot to right-center, to give Colorado the lead over San Francisco in the first inning … Padres’ top prospect Fernando Tatis Jr. showed off his wheels as the shortstop had a pair of infield singles … Trevor Story had an RBI single in the sixth against San Diego to finally get Colorado on the board before a five-run ninth — capped by Garrett Hampson’s two-out, full-count, three-run homer — gave the Rockies a comeback win off Luis Perdomo.

Worth noting: Justin Lawrence had another impressive spring moment, coming out of the bullpen to strike Manny Machado out looking to end the third inning. He flashed several high-90s heaters and finished with an effective change as Machado didn’t even offer at a pitch in the at-bat. San Diego tagged Lawrence for a run the next inning as he recorded two more Ks.

Up next: Rockies vs. Cubs, Saturday 7:40 MDT, Salt River Fields

Starting pitchers: Rockies LHP Kyle Freeland vs. Chicago LHP Jon Lester
