With the start of the Major League Baseball season postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, we here at The Denver Post took a look at how the Rockies would fare in MLB The Show 20 on PlayStation 4. We will have a story for every game that had been scheduled until real-life baseball returns. Here’s a look at the virtual Rockies’ preseason preview. Entering Friday’s game, the Rockies were 1-0.
SAN DIEGO — Jon Gray pitched a complete-game shutout and Ryan McMahon drove in four runs as the Rockies defeated the Padres Friday to improve to 2-0 on the season.
Gray (1-0) struck out six, walked five and allowed just five hits in his performance.
McMahon went 2-for-4 on the day with four RBIs, including a three-run home run in the fourth inning off Padres starter Dinelson Lamet that broke a scoreless game and put Colorado up for good. The Rockies got two more on the board in the sixth inning off of Nolan Arenado’s two-run double.
David Dahl and Trevor Story had two hits apiece for the Rockies.
Manny Machado was San Diego’s lone bright spot, collecting two hits off Gray.
The Rockies and Padres go at again Saturday as Antonio Senzatela takes on San Diego’s Joey Lucchesi on the mound.
