Padres Vs. Rockies Final Score: Colorado Clobbers San Diego, 9-1

The Colorado Rockies broke out the bats on Saturday night and defeated the San Diego Padres, 9-1. This snapped a two-game losing and provides the Rockies with a chance to pick up a series victory on Sunday.

Tyler Colvin drove in three runs for the Rockies on a solo home run (16) in the second inning and a two-run double in the fifth inning. Chris Nelson added an RBI single two batters later in the fifth to score Colvin. Wilin Rosario had driven in the first run of the game in the first inning.

Dexter Fowler put the game way out of reach in the bottom of the eighth when he hit a grand slam (13). Jordan Pacheco had started things off with a single while DJ LeMahieu reached on an error and Jason Giambi, just activated from the disabled list, singled to load the bases.

Jhoulys Chacin (2-4, 4.85 ERA) allowed one run, a sixth-inning Will Venable home run, in seven innings, allowing five hits, striking out four and walking two. Matt Belisle and Carlos Torres finished out the game. Padres starter Edinson Volquez (9-10, 4.27 ERA) allowed five runs and later saw Miles Mikolas allow the Fowler grand slam.

Colorado (54-77, 29-41 home) closes out this series on Sunday with Jeff Francis opposing Casey Kelly.
