Rockies strike first

Like I said earlier today, baseball is never straighforward. The journeyman got through the first inning unscathed. The ace got touched for two.

So 2-0 Rockies through one. San Diego’s Jake Peavy did some decent damage control after loading the bases with no outs. But he threw a ton of pitches, and that wil affect things later, because Colorado’s lineup is such a juggernaut.

Meantime, Fogg allowed only a hit and struck out two in his first inning. Padres should’ve been well aware he’d be a load. Check out this list of pitchers Fogg has beaten this season: Roy Oswalt, Curt Schilling, Mike Mussina, Brandon Webb, Derek Lowe
