Rockies Vs. Padres Final Score: Colorado Win 8-6 In 13th Inning

The Colorado Rockies (36-57) bested the San Diego Padres (40-56) in a 12-inning slugfest that featured 14 total runs despite only 1 home run.

SP Jeff Francis pitched the first five frames, but gave up 5 earned runs. He still departed with the lead, however, as the Rockies mounted two comebacks in the fourth and fifth innings for a 6-5 lead heading into the eighth. But, in the bottom of the eighth, with RP Matt Belisle pitching, C Yasmani Grandal knocked soft liner to left field, scoring LF Carlos Quentin and tying the game at 8-8.

The Rockies did not post a major threat again until the top of the 12th, when a 2-out single from INF Jordan Pacheco and C Ramon Hernandez gave Colorado a 8-6 lead, and the eventual win.
