DENVER — Manny Machado homered and tripled to drive in five runs, helping to make up for the absence of Fernando Tatis Jr. and two other teammates as the San Diego Padres beat the Colorado Rockies 8-1 on Tuesday night.
The Padres were without Tatis, their star shortstop, after he tested positive for COVID-19 and was placed on the injured list.
Utility players Jurickson Profar and Jorge Mateo also were placed on the IL as part of baseball’s contact tracing health and safety protocols.
The Rockies took a 1-0 lead in the first inning but didn't score the rest of the game. Colorado has now lost four games in a row and has the worst record in the National League at 12-23.
