petco parkWednesday night wasn’t Rockies Jorge De La Rosa’s dream. But it wasn’t a nightmare, or at least it wasn’t a nightmare of his doing. Sometimes you take what you can get.

After three short and horrid starts, De La Rosa went six innings and was hurt more by misfortune than missed pitches in a 4-2 loss to the Padres at Petco Park in front of 17,428.

De La Rosa (0-3) had one poorly located pitch early — Tommy Medica’s leadoff home run in the second — but otherwise made a good percentage of his pitches while giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits (two damaging infield hits in the fifth), with four strikeouts and a walk.

“I feel good, but we still lost the game,” De La Rosa said. “No matter how I did, it’s my fault when a mistake is made and we lose the game.”
