Dickerson's Blast Not Enough for Padres

Poway native goes deep, rest of Friars bats go to sleep

On Thursday night the Padres scored 14 runs against the Rockies. On Friday night the Padres scored one run against the Rockies.

Just one night after their offensive gluttony the Friars could not solve Colorado starter Tyler Chatwood in a 4-1 loss. San Diego scored its lone run in the 2nd inning on a 425-foot missile off the bat of Poway native Alex Dickerson.

His homer put the Padres on top 1-0 but the lead was short-lived. In the top of the 3rd inning Luis Perdomo gave up a 2-run homer to Charlie Blackmon that turned out to be the game-winner. Perdomo certainly was not bad, allowing four runs in 6.2 innings, but he's saddled with the loss.

Same two teams on Saturday with Christian Friedrich on the mound against Jon Gray.
