Rockies shut out at home for first time since 2015

DENVER — For the first time in nearly two years, the Rockies were shut out in a game at Coors Field.

The San Diego Padres beat the Rockies, 6-0, to take the three-game series, the first time the Rockies were shut out at home since July 21, 2015.

Padres starting pitcher Zach Lee thre 5 1/3 innings, allowing two hits and striking out three.

The Rockies finished with just three hits — two by Charlie Blackmon and one by Carlos Gonzalez.

The Rockies missed out on a chance to win their first three series to start a season since 1995.

Manager Bud Black’s team heads to San Francisco for a four-game series beginning Thursday.

“We’ll get it going,” Black said of his concerns about the underachieving offense, which has scored only six runs in the past  three games, “This group is too talented to stay mired in a slump.”
