The Gazette, Colorado Springs
What happened: The Padres handed Ty Blach his worst outcome of the year and nearly tied his career-high in earned runs allowed. They scored in each inning from the second to the fifth to pull ahead enough to stave off a late Rockies’ run. On the mound: Ty Blach allowed a season-high seven earned runs and made it through just 3⅔ innings. He has allowed at least four earned runs in three of his last four starts to raise his season ERA to 5.32. Victor Vodnik was another Padres’ victim in his inning of work. He allowed three earned runs and walked a pair to bring his ERA with the Rockies to 17.18. Daniel Bard was activated Monday from the injured list and threw 1⅓ scoreless innings in his first game back. Colorado allowed 15 hits. At the plate: Elehuris Montero singled to extend his on-base streak to 26 games. It is the longest active streak in the majors. Nolan Jones hit his 17th home run and two singles. Brendan Rodgers reached four times with three singles and a walk to drive in a pair of runs. Charlie Blackmon had a pair of hits and runs driven in.
