The Colorado Rockies are on a two-game losing streak following Friday's 5-4 loss to the San Diego Padres at Coors Field. The Rockies cut the deficit to one run in the ninth inning, but a comeback proved futile.
Rockies starter Alex White (2-7, 5.58 ERA) allowed three runs in 3.2 innings, one on a Carlos Quentin second-inning home run and the other two on an infield single and a groundout. The latter scored immediately after Will Venable reached third base on a triple.
Matt Reynolds was charged with the next run, which scored in the fifth, but Chase Headley scored on a Quentin ground-rule double that Josh Roenicke allowed. The Rockies cut the lead to 4-3 on sixth-inning home runs by Jordan Pacheco (3) and Wilin Rosario (23), but Rex Brothers gave the Padres some breathing room when Chris Denorfia drove in a run on an infield single.
Clayton Richard (12-12, 3.74 ERA) picked up the win after allowing three runs in 6.1 innings. Luke Gregerson picked up his third save but did allow a home run to Andrew Brown.
The Rockies (53-77, 28-41 home) continue this series on Saturday at 6:10 p.m. MT. Jhoulys Chacin and Edinson Volquez are the scheduled starters.
