Recap


Rockies 5, Padres 2:
Troy Tulowitzki hit a two-run double and Jeff Francis pitched six solid innings as Colorado won its home opener.

Wilin Rosario and Dexter Fowler added solo home runs for the Rockies, who hit eight homers in their season-opening three-game series at Milwaukee. Francis
(1-0) allowed one run, five hits, walked one and struck out five to improve to 7-13 lifetime against San Diego.

Former Rockie Jason Marquis (0-1) allowed five runs (two earned) and six hits in six innings for the Padres, who fell to 1-3 on their season-opening six-game
road trip. Jesus Guzman had two hits and an RBI while Carlos Quentin recorded a run-scoring double for San Diego.

Guzman's bloop single scored Everth Cabrera, who stole second with two out, to give the Padres a 1-0 lead in the first. The Rockies went ahead 3-1 in the third
when Tulowitzki delivered a two-out double into the left-center gap two batters after shortstop Cabrera extended the inning with a run-scoring error.

Rosario, who led National League rookies with 28 homers in 2012, hit his second of 2013 in the fourth inning while Fowler's third was a towering shot off the
second-deck facade in right field in the fifth. Rafael Betancourt worked around a two-out single in the ninth for his second save.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Colorado had lost its previous two home openers since a 7-0 victory over San Diego in 2010. ... Padres rookie 2B Jedd Gyorko, who had a hit in each of his first three games, went 0-for-4.  ... The game time temperature was 65 degrees.
