Padres' Bass reels in Rockies in debutJun 14, 2011 - 7:02 AM
Bass (1-0) lasted five innings, allowing five hits and four walks while striking out one to halt the Padres' three game skid.
"[Bass] showed a good live fastball, a good hard slider," San Diego manager Bud Black said. "I liked his composure and poise on the mound."
Cory Luebke and Mike Adams combined for three innings of scoreless relief. Heath Bell allowed a two-out baserunner in the ninth, but struck out Carlos Gonzalez to record his 18th save of the season.
Cameron Maybin went 2-for-4 with a triple and a run scored after being activated from the 15-day disabled list prior to the game.
Colorado's Aaron Cook (0-1) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two over 5 2/3 innings.
Charlie Blackmon recorded his second career RBI as the Rockies dropped their third straight.
The Padres came out swinging, loading the bases in the top of the first on consecutive singles from Chris Denorfia, Jason Bartlett and Chase Headley. After Ludwick's sac fly to deep right, Anthony Rizzo ground into a 3-6-3 double play to stunt the rally.
In the fourth, Ty Wigginton worked a two-out walk and promptly stole second before Blackmon looped a ball into center to even things up.
Bartlett drew a one-out walk in the sixth, advanced to third on Headley's ground-rule double and crossed the plate on a Ludwick groundout.
Later in the frame, the Padres positioned runners on the corners with two outs. The threat was put on hold, however, as lightning and rain forced a 1:23 delay.
When play resumed, Matt Belisle struck out Nick Hundley to end the inning.
With two down in the ninth, Maybin tripled and crossed the plate on an Alberto Gonzalez single, sealing the final margin.
"When you go from the sixth inning on and two bases on balls is all you get from their bullpen, it's obviously going to make it very difficult to come back," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said.
On Monday, the Padres returned Maybin from the 15-day disabled list, placed pitcher Aaron Harang on the 15-day disabled list with a right foot contusion and selected Bass from Double-A San Antonio... Prior to Monday's contest, the Padres had gone just 10-for-66 with runners in scoring position over their previous eight games. They went 2-for-6 on Monday...Blackmon was called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs on June 7.
