DENVER (AP) - Zach Lee and four relievers combined on a three-hitter, Ryan Schimpf homered as part of a four-run first inning and the San Diego Padres beat the Colorado Rockies 6-0 on Wednesday.
Lee (1-0) earned his first major league win in his second career start. The righty was filling in for Luis Perdomo, who went on the disabled list before the game with shoulder inflammation.
Lee went 5 1-3 solid innings, allowing two hits, before turning things over to the bullpen to complete the first shutout of the Rockies at Coors Field since July 2015.
It was a rough first inning for Denver native Kyle Freeland (1-1), who allowed an RBI double to Wil Myers, a run-scoring single to Yangervis Solarte and a two-run homer to Schimpf.
