Recap


Rockies 2, Padres 1:
Todd Helton snapped a scoreless tie with a two-run pinch-hit homer in the seventh, lifting visiting Colorado to a sweep of struggling San Diego.

Helton came off the bench and connected for his first homer of the season off reliever Dale Thayer (0-1), scoring Chris Nelson. Jorge De La Rosa (1-1) gave up two hits with seven strikeouts in six scoreless innings. Rafael Betancourt pitched around a pair of walks and Jedd Gyorko's sacrifice fly in the ninth for his fifth save.

Clayton Richard held the Rockies to no runs on two hits in six innings, but it wasn’t enough to keep San Diego from losing its fifth in a row and eighth in its past nine. The Padres are tied with Miami at 2-10 for worst record in the majors.

After Nelson led off the seventh with a walk, Yorvit Torrealba moved Nelson to second with a sacrifice, and Helton came through pinch-hitting for De La Rosa.

Colorado, which started the day leading the majors in slugging percentage and fourth in runs scored, won despite finishing with just three hits. The Padres finished with two hits.

GAME NOTEBOOK: San Diego OF Carlos Quentin dropped his appeal of the eight-game suspension issued by Major League Baseball following Thursday’s brawl with the Dodgers. … The Rockies had not won a game in which they scored less than five runs until Sunday. … Helton has 355 career homers.
