Charlie Blackmon gave Padres pitchers a impolite style of Coors Discipline on Thursday night time.

The outfielder homered twice on towering balls that carried out to middle area and had 4 whole RBIs, whereas his teammates did the remaining to negate a second straight mediocre begin by Jon Grey because the Rockies beat San Diego 9-6 within the collection opener.

Thursday was the most recent in a string of latest spectacular offensive performances by Blackmon, who has reached base in all 23 of his house video games this 12 months. Since returning June 7 from a calf damage that landed on him on the 10-day injured record, Blackmon is batting .440 (11-for-25) with 4 homers.

“I really feel fairly good on the plate currently — I’m limiting my errors and I’m not making a gift of a ton of at-bats,” Blackmon stated. “Taking part in at house helps somewhat bit, and have a pair weeks off so I’m not rundown and drained helps, too.”

Earlier than Blackmon even received a bat in his fingers, San Diego battered Grey round for a pair runs within the prime of the primary inning through Eric Hosmer’s RBI double and Manny Machado’s RBI single. However Daniel Murphy’s RBI single and Ian Desmond’s two-RBI double off southpaw Matt Strahm within the the underside of the body put the Rockies proper again in management, 3-2.

“I wasn’t commanding the ball nice within the first, however we did make some changes and fastball command received us via and turned the outing round somewhat bit,” Grey stated. “The (slider) was taking part in tonight, too.”
