PADRES TAKE ON ROCKIES AT HOME
Mon, 12 Jul 2010 10:53 PM EDT

Everyone seems to have the impression that a baseball team will not perform as well away as they do at home, that somehow the rigors of travel make it difficult to win. Well, the Padres totally shattered that misconception on Sunday as they defeated the Colorado Rockies, at home, 9-7 in an explosive game that proved to be a great finish to the first half of the season for them.

The Rockies have been plagued with defensive errors that have cost them games recently. On Sunday, there was a massive let down to the Rockies fans when reliever Matt Belisle let up two runs in the eight inning.  This action cost them the game. Mistakes happen, and that is why baseball is the greatest sport around, the human element makes it what it is. Vegas odds.

This is not to say that the Padres didn’t play a good game, they did a marvelous job of capitalizing on errors that the Rockies served to them, ultimately winning the game. They had a great showing, the pitching was solid, and the batting was explosive.

Scott Hairston matched a career high with four hits in helping the NL West-leading Padres gain an advantage in victories over the Rockies as they go into the All Star break. The rest will be good for both teams. The Padres finished the first half of the season on a high, and the Rockies had their season-high six-game winning streak snapped. Betting lines.

Trailing 6-3 in the seventh, the Padres pulled to within a run on Chase Headley’s two-run double, and with the error from Matt, things just got sweeter. A come from behind victory is the best kind there is, but it’s even nicer when it’s at the opponent’s home field, and it’s the last game of the first half of the MLB season. Sports scores.
