Colorado’s power has been good to start the season, with ten home runs in the first five games. Charlie Blackmon has four of those and both DJ LaMahieu and Ian Desmond have a pair.
It’s really, really early. Even too early for me to calling a player’s start slow but Rockies fans would have loved to see Carlos Gonzalez prove that his 2017 version was dead and gone. That hasn’t been the case so far. He’s got five hits in 21 at-bats and just one extra-base hit.
Tyler Anderson got rocked in Arizona the first time he started a game this season. It should be easier swimming at Petco Park but he won’t have a long leash, either.
San Diego Padres
The Padres became the last team in the league to get into the win column with an 8–4 victory on Tuesday night at Petco.
Just about everybody is a relative unknown when it comes to the Padres’ roster, but a rookie who hit just four home runs in part of a big league stint last season was the hero.
Christian Villanueva mashed three home runs and answered a curtain call in front of nearly 20,000 strong. His first two shots were off Rockies’ starter Kyle Freeland, a lefty. His third was against another young arm with starting experience, Antonio Senzatela, who came out of the ‘pen after starting for most of last season as a rookie.
Joey Lucchesi has made a favorable impression in the San Diego system since he was drafted in 2016. This will be his first start of the season and second career start.
He’s a 24-year-old lefty and considered one of the best prospects in the Padres’ system. This will be a big night for fans getting to see him for the first time in 2018.
