DENVER (AP) — Anthony Bass pitched five efficient innings to win his major league debut, Ryan Ludwick drove in two runs and the San Diego Padres snapped a three-game skid with a 3-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night in a game delayed 83 minutes by a thunderstorm.
Bass (1-0) was called up before the game from Double-A San Antonio with Dustin Moseley still bothered by a slightly dislocated left shoulder and Aaron Harang going on the disabled list due to a bruised right foot.
The righty allowed five hits, walked four and struck out one before the storm hit and halted his night.
Aaron Cook (0-1) didn’t return to the mound after the long delay, either. Cook, who was making his second start of the season, gave up five hits and two runs in 5 2-3 innings.
