San Diego Padres' Wil Myers circles the bases after a solo home run to lead off the sixth inning off Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood on Monday in Denver.
Arenado lined a fastball from reliever Miguel Diaz (1-1) to right for his third homer. 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.
The other Padres cycle was also accomplished at Coors Field, by Matt Kemp on August 14, 2015.
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.
Senzatela pitched seven strong innings, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out five and walking one. Adam Ottavino pitched a ideal eighth inning and Greg Holland navigated a leadoff walk in the ninth to earn his fifth save of the year. He finished 4 for 4 with two runs scored and two RBIs to increase his slash line to.382/.382/.794 to begin the season. He yielded four runs on seven hits in 5 1/3 innings Monday. They made it interesting with a two-run homer by Mark Reynolds in the ninth, but fell 5-3. And there's nothing wrong with celebrating a cycle, a game in which a batter hits a single, double, triple and homer in the same game, one of the oddities of baseball that doesn't come along all that often. The curveball came in at 74 miles per hour but left Blackmon's bat at 105 miles per hour ... wow. I know we are less than 10 games in, but it's the start of something great.
He left with a 1-0 lead on Myers' RBI double in the third but didn't get the win because he didn't last five innings. So just let them enjoy this one. This will be Freeland's first career game against the Padres.
Gonzalez tied the game 1-1 with a first-pitch homer off Weaver to lead off the fourth. Charlie Blackmon made it 2-2 when he went deep in the sixth, and Nolan Arenado connected for the game-winner, his third homer of the season, in the seventh. Cahill, who was put on the DL retroactive to April 6, could make his next scheduled start.
Padres: RHP Luis Perdomo (0-0, 8.44 ERA) is dealing with shoulder inflammation and could go on the disabled list Wednesday. Rockies OF David Dahl (stress reaction rib) will join the team in San Francisco this weekend to be re-evaluated by the training staff. Dahl is getting treatment at the Rockies' complex in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Rockies: Rookie RHP Antonio Senzatela will get the second start of his career.
