DENVER (AP) — Tyler Anderson pitched into the seventh inning in his impressive major league debut, Mark Reynolds homered and the Colorado Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 2-1 on Sunday.
San Diego starter Christian Friedrich struck out a season-high nine and allowed only two hits and an unearned run against his former team. Matt Kemp had three hits for the Padres, who fell to 0-10 on Sundays and 1-20 in the final game of a series this season.
Anderson, the 20th pick in the 2011 amateur draft, did his part in holding down San Diego’s offense. He allowed one run over 6 1/3 innings, struck out six and didn’t walk a batter.
The matchup between Friedrich and Anderson marked the third time two Rockies first-round picks faced each other. Friedrich was the 25th selection in 2008 and made his big league debut in 2012.
