Wil Myers hits for cycle as Padres beat Rockies 5-3

Coors field allowed the eighth-most triples per game last season, according to ESPN's park factors.

Anthony Rizzo lined a game-winning RBI single to left with two outs in the ninth inning, giving Chicago a victory over Los Angeles in a rain-delayed game. This one gave the team a 3-2 lead that they would never relinquish.

Arenado lined a fastball from reliever Miguel Diaz (1-1) to right for his third homer.

Myers has started each of the Padres' eight games at First Base and is now hitting.300 with 2 HRs, 5 RBIs and 6 runs scored.

Harper has 4 hits, 3 RBIs as Nationals rout Cardinals 14-6 WASHINGTON - If nothing else, Nationals slugger Bryce Harper spent some quality time with Cardinals first baseman Matt Carpenter on Monday night.

Senzatela gave up a run in the sixth on two singles and Wil Myers' sacrifice fly. Senzatela did not leave it. Senzatela got Luis Sardinas to ground into a force out.

"Those moments don't happen very often", Green said. "I would rather ambush him with their start". The Padres continue to have issues putting runs on the board, as San Diego has produced three or less runs in six of its first nine games. He struck out five. "I had good fastball command today". Manuel Margot led off the game with a homer.

Jay Bruce hit two homers, including a go-ahead, two-run, two-out, eighth-inning shot to right field, to send NY to victory.

Padres: Green said RHP Trevor Cahill (back) threw from 90 feet. "He puts pressure on pitchers, puts pressure on defenses".

Myers, one of baseball's premier Rockies killers, hit for the cycle at one of his favorite ballparks. He would be stranded at third.

It's early, but Myers leads the National League in total bases (27), hits (13) and runs (8) in 2017. ".Couldn't ask for anything more from him. We just couldn't scratch too much from our side".

Diaz took the mound after Weaver, having yet to allow a run in four appearances.

On a 1-1 count, catcher Austin Hedges set his glove low and away. It came off an 83 miles per hour fastball from Weaver. Arenado redirected it 405 feet.

"I was screaming, 'three!' to myself", Myers said. "Stuff-wise, looking down at that bullpen, that's probably our best matchup with Nolan".

The Rockies' offense, meanwhile, failed to take advantage of a spot start by Jarred Cosart. Last year, he finally lived up to his mega-prospect billing by hitting.259/.336/.461 with 28 bombs, 94 RBI, 99 runs scored and 28 stolen bases, almost joining the exclusive 30-homer, 30-steal club.
