The Rockies wore black wrist bands, wrote "7-20" on their eye black and hung a black jersey in their dugout that read "We Remember 7-20," to honor those affected by the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colo., early Friday morning.

With the Rockies in San Diego, the Padres held a moment of silence before the game. The Rockies also released a statement:

"The Colorado Rockies are deeply saddened by the horrific act of senseless violence that took place in our community early this morning. All Coloradans feel the pain and sorrow that has come with this tragedy. As part of the Colorado community, the Rockies share this pain with everyone involved. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families and friends, who will all be in our thoughts and prayers during this trying time."
