Myers showing he's worth every penny to Padres

It also conjures the glorious memory of Bengie Molina, one of the best catchers but slowest players to ever grace the Big Leagues, finishing his only career cycle with a triple.

Anthony Rizzo hit a game-winning single off Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 after raising a World Series championship banner for the first time at Wrigley Field. Myers finished off the masterpiece with a hard hit ball to left center field that resulted in a triple.

Yes, it was at Coors Field, but a cycle is a cycle, dammit!

"We had a lot of trouble laying off the high fastball", Padres manager Andy Green explained.

Arenado lined a fastball from reliever Miguel Diaz (1-1) to right for his third homer.

"Obviously, a couple of bad pitches cost me", Weaver said. 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. Black went to the mound with two outs in the seventh and runners on first and second before Senzatela faced pinch hitter Luis Sardinas. "I'm just trying to feel my way through instead of just trying to execute the pitches and execute the scouting report". He came away with a no-decision, however, because Colorado's bats remain dormant thus far in April. Today they'll try to secure a series win before leaving Coors Field and continuing their road trip. Perdomo is 0-2 with a 6.62 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.

Padres: Green said RHP Trevor Cahill (back) threw from 90 feet.

With Monday's win the Padres improved to 4-4 on the season.

The young pitcher breezed through seven innings, allowing a pair of singles and three walks, and got just enough offense from Khris Davis' two-run homer to help the Athletics spoil Kansas City's home opener with a 2-0 victory at sun-splashed Kauffman Stadium (see full recap).

Pineda takes ideal game into 7th; Yanks beat Rays 8-1 NEW YORK - As Michael Pineda threw strike after strike and got out after out, the excitement of the home opener crowd at Yankee Stadium increased and its noise-level rose.
