Rockies Vs. Padres Final Score: Colorado Pounds San Diego 10-2

San Diego Padres starting pitcher Jason Marquis is more than familiar with Denver's thin air, and he held the Colorado Rockies more or less in check through five innings on Friday night. But in the bottom of the sixth inning, Colorado blew the game open with four runs, and they never looked back from there.

Colorado was up 2-0 on Marquis and the Padres heading into the sixth, with those runs coming modestly on a Carlos Gonzalez groundout and a Marco Scutaro single. But in the sixth, the Rockies found their power, as Gonzalez connected for a two run triple, which was followed by an RBI triple by right fielder Tyler Colvin. In the eighth inning, with the team up 6-2, Michael Cuddyer and Wilin Rosario both blasted two run homers to left.

But the story of the game was arguably Rockies starter Jeff Francis, who held the anemic Padres offense scoreless through six innings while only relinquishing three hits.

The two teams will be back on the field on Saturday night at 5:15 MT.
