Padres Vs. Rockies Final Score: Colorado Barely Avoids Being No-Hit, Loses To San Diego, 8-2

The Colorado Rockies will finish with a below-.500 record at Coors Field this season after Monday' 8-2 loss to the San Diego Padres. Just as 2011 as has gone the last several weeks, the Rockies looked inept out there while playing in their 41st home loss.

Cory Luebke (6-9, 3.23 ERA) allowed his only hit of the game in the sixth inning when Mark Ellis hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning. Eric Young Jr. had reached base two batters earlier. Luebke struck out nine over seven innings. Ernesto Frieri struck out three Rockies over the final two innings of the game.

Kevin Millwood (3-3, 4.56 ERA) had his shortest and worst outing as a Rockie. The first three runs scored on singles in the second and things innings, but in the fourth Aaron Cunningham hit a two-run home run to make the game 5-0 in favor of the Padres. Cameron Maybin then followed in the dame inning with his own two-run home run. Jason Bartlett's sacrifice fly made it 8-0 in favor of the Padres.

The Rockies (70-83, 38-41 home) have two more home games left. Jhoulys Chacin and Mat Latos take the mound on Tuesday evening.
