Bass shuts down Rockies as Padres win, 4-0
Tuesday, September 20, 2011
DENVER (AP) -- Rookie Anthony Bass pitched five solid innings to help the San Diego Padres complete a rare three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies with a 4-0 win Wednesday in the final game of the season at Coors Field.
Bass (2-0) cruised through this game, allowing just two hits while throwing an economical 52 pitches. Both of his major league wins have now come at Colorado.
Anthony Rizzo and Andy Parrino had RBI singles for the Padres, who earned their first sweep of three or more games in Denver since April 2001.
The reeling Rockies have dropped seven straight at home, their longest drought ever at Coors. The team lost nine in a row at home in their inaugural season of 1993 when they played at old Mile High Stadium.
