It was a wild night at Coors Field Friday. The Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres combined for 28 (!) runs as the visiting team from Southern California toppled their Rocky mountain hosts 16-12. Here's how it went down. At one point the Padres were trailing by as much as 11-5 in the top of the ninth. And then outfielder Hunter Renfroe crushed his 20th home run of the season to cut the deficit to two (after a two-run single from Eric Hosmer).
Next came a Fernando Tatis Jr. game-tying two-run single off Rockies' closer Wade Davis.
And finally, the go ahead hit by Padres catcher Austin Allen in the 12th.

One more! Renfroe came back up to bat and did his worst, again.
Where else but Coors Field for this sort of game to happen? Unfortunately for the home team, they were the victims of a franchise record comeback by the Padres.
