Rockies vs. Padres final score: Colorado's offense in full swing in 9-5 victory

Denis Poroy

The Rockies continue to treat Petco Park like Coors Field West, this time scoring nine runs on 14 hits in another win over the Padres.

It didn't matter how far the fences were moved in at Petco Park: Wilin Rosario and Michael Cuddyer still would've had the same result.

Rosario and Cuddyer each hit two-run, upper-deck blasts to lift the Rockies to a 9-5 victory over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night. Rosario's homer gave the Rockies an early 3-1 lead after Todd Helton reached base via the first of two errors on Padres third baseman Jesus Guzman. Cuddyer hit one just left of where Rosario's bomb landed two innings later to extend the Rockies' lead to six.

Jhoulys Chacin was decent in five innings of work, allowing just two runs on four hits in five innings. He wasn't real efficient, walking two batters and throwing just 44 of 83 pitches for strikes.

Still, Chacin was much more effective than his teammates in the bullpen. Edgmer Escalona allowed a pair of solo home runs in two innings of work, and Matt Belisle struggled in the eighth, giving up a single, a walk and a double before recording the first out of the inning.

Belisle wound up getting Jedd Gyorko and Carlos Quentin, who is appealing his eight-game suspension for charging the mound against Zack Greinke and the Dodgers earlier in the week, to pop out with runners on second and third. Matty Ice then struck out Will Venable after a long at-bat to escape the jam.

The Rockies had the bases loaded and nobody out in the top of the ninth and didn't score, one of the few things Colorado has done wrong offensively against the Padres this season.

Rosario had a career-high four hits to pace the Rockies, while Carlos Gonzalez finished with three. Troy Tulowitzki added a pair of knocks and drove in two runs. Even the struggling Toddfather had two hits.

Venable and Everth Cabrera homered for San Diego. Starting pitcher Edinson Volquez allowed six earned runs in 3.1 innings en route to his third loss of the young season. Volquez's ERA stands at 11.68.
