The Rockies’ miserable 2012 season hit a new low today; Kip Wells pitched seven scoreless innings for his first win in three years as the Padres beat the Rockies 2-0 at Coors Field.
Wells was making his second start since being called up San Diego. He allowed five runs — two earned — in five innings in losing the first against Houston on Tuesday. Today’s outing was the first in which he pitched at least seven innings and allowed no runs since July 18, 2007. His previous win came with the Reds in 2009.
The Rockies lost two out of three at home to the Padres and are now even with them in the win column for the season: Colorado is 30-48, while San Diego is 30-50. Only the Cubs, at 29-49, have a worse record than those two teams.
