Kemp, leading the wreckage of the Rockies Saturday.

All good things must come to an end, even baseball games. Not to mention staggering rookie home run streaks and the San Diego Padres’ season-opening, run-scoring futilities. For now, at least. But did the Padres have to rub it in as they did Saturday evening?

Bad enough for the Colorado Rockies: The Padres not only ended their season-opening scoreless streak at their expense Friday night, but they battered them 13-6 while they were at it. Worse: The Padres on Saturday picked up where they left off Friday night, then saw and raised themselves, 16-3 with nineteen hits.
