Padres Vs. Rockies Final Score: Colorado Picks Up 11-2 Run Following 8-Run 7th Inning

The Colorado Rockies' bats came alive (for 11 hits) on Monday afternoon and made the San Diego Padres' pitching fall apart, unlike what the Rockies have done in previous games so far this spring. It all came together in the bottom of the seventh inning when the team scored eight runs.

Wilin Rosario began the inning with a walk and then capped the inning much later with a three-run home run, a bomb to center field. In between that, three runs scored by way of two walks and a hit-by-pitch. The two other runs scored by way of a sacrifice fly and a throwing error on a double-steal attempt. Erik Hamren took the hook for most of those runs, allowing six while not recording a single out.

Rosario also singled in Brandon Wood earlier in the game during the fifth inning. Wood drove in a run on a triple in that inning, too.

The Rockies' pitching didn't get off to a great start with Jeremy Guthrie, who allowed a home run to Cameron Maybin to start the game. But it all went smoothly after that, as Guthrie pitched a clean four innings after that while picking up three strikeouts and surrendering two total hits. Esmil Rogers rebounded with a three-inning relief appearance, striking out four and allowing one run (a Carlos Quentin RBI single). Matt Reynolds and Rafael Betancourt each allowed a hit in their lone innings of work.

The Rockies are now 3-6-1 and will be on the road Tuesday for a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
