Two fans at the San Diego Padres game against the Colorado Rockies at Petco Park rushed the field and had security on their tail for ages.
Wednesday’s game between the Padres and Rockies featured not one but two fans running on the field.
With San Diego leading 2-0, one fan decided to rush the field in the top of the eight. Just when he got in the grasp of stadium security, another took his chance and sprinted across the grass too.
It was a chaotic minute in an otherwise straightforward game.
Field rusher No. 2 showed great form when approaching the security guard beyond third base. However, he made a critical error by juking to the left instead of the right. He corraled himself into the stands, making it easier for personnel to take him down.
He definitely paid for that, too, as security definitely wasn’t gentle, slamming him into the wall like a hockey player checking a bitter rival into the boards.
Fans ran onto the field as the Padres swept the Rockies
Maybe it was worth the pain for that 30 seconds in the spotlight. Hopefully, it was since it’s unlikely either will ever be allowed at Petco Park again.
Here’s another angle from the backside.
San Diego had a celebratory mood thanks to the Padres completing the 3-0 victory over the Rockies.
Fernando Tatis Jr. had an outstanding return to the lineup after missing eight games on the COVID-IL. He went 4-for-4 with a home run and two RBI, proving the time off hadn’t hindered him in the slightest. On the mound, Joe Musgrove pitched seven scoreless innings with 11 strikeouts.
The Padres completed the series sweep and extended their winning streak to six. They are right on the tail of the NL West-leading Giants with a 27-17 record.
