Padres' Myers hits for cycle in 5-3 win over Rockies

Yesterday's recap

Check. Tonight's 5-3 Rockies loss to the San Diego Padres had all the hallmarks of a game from 2016's 75-win season.

Last season, Myers made the first All-Star team of his career, as the event was hosted in San Diego.

As ESPN Stats and Info noted, the second cycle comes 217 games after Kemp's.

Three innings later, Myers hit a solo home run to right field, doubling the Padres' lead. The next thing I knew, Myers had hit the ball in the outfield, out of any defenders' reach. Cosart got DJ LeMahieu to do it in the first, Reynolds in the second and Gerardo Parra in the fourth.

Hunter Renfroe also homered for the Padres, a two-run shot. I was about to go on Twitter to make a dumb joke about them jinxing it, but got distracted and never hit the send button. The Padres' first baseman made it 2-0 in the sixth with a leadoff homer off Chatwood.

Then in the third, he added a double that scored Manuel Margot to give San Diego a 1-0 lead. Parra bagged a hit and a run on Monday, while Reynolds put up a hit, two RBI and a run. But if you submerge further into his numbers from a season ago, you'll see that the 27-year-old actually struggled mightily at Coors Field, posting a 6.12 ERA in 14 starts at Coors Field, compared to a shiny 1.69 ERA in 13 road assignments. That was by design, Green said. "I would rather ambush him with their start".

Torrens was hitless in three at-bats before leaving in a double-switch.

For Tuesday's matchup, the Padres will be bringing out RHP Jered Weaver. He tossed five shutout innings in his major league debut at Milwaukee on Thursday.

Thus far, Rockies home games have a produced a 2-1 record in favor of the under after Colorado played their first series in front of the hometown faithful this past weekend versus the Dodgers, but we're hoping the pitching matchup in this series-opening encounter between two NL West rivals can generate the opposite.
