Recap


Padres 9, Rockies 5: Yasmani Grandal, Carlos Quentin and Chase Headley each homered as host San Diego continued its strong play since the All-Star break with a series-opening win.

Quentin led off the Padres’ three-run second inning with a solo blast off Drew Pomeranz (1-5), who lost to San Diego for the third time this season.

Jason Marquis (3-5) allowed five runs (three earned) over five innings and won back-to-back starts for the first time since May 2011.

Carlos Gonzalez gave the Rockies a brief lead in the top of the third with his second career grand slam and second homer in as many games.

San Diego, which has won six of eight games since the All-Star break, plated four runs in the third on Chris Denorfia’s two-run triple and Grandal’s two-run shot off Pomeranz, who gave up seven runs over three innings.

The Padres added two runs in the eighth when pinch runner Cameron Maybin scored on Logan Forsythe’s sacrifice fly and Headley followed with his 11th home run.

Grandal had two hits and threw out a runner attempting to steal for the second straight game after going 0-for-17 against base runners to start his career. 

Josh Rutledge had three hits for Colorado, which fell to 11-27 over its last 38 games.
