    Dustin Moseley finally got some run support but couldn't hold down the potent Colorado offense.

    If the Padres score seven runs in a game, nine times out of 10 they'll win said game.

    Friday night in Colorado was that 10th time.

    The Rockies offense went bonkers at Coors Field (big shocker, right?) to beat the Padres 12-7.

    San Diego followed up Wednesday's 23-hit performance in Milwaukee with an 11-hit parade against the Rockies, but starter Dustin Moseley had his second straight poor outing.

    Moseley gave up nine hits and six runs in just four innings to take the loss. On May 1, Moseley had the third-best ERA in the National League. Friday's start dropped him to a tie for 20th.

    Wasted in the loss was another stellar performance by center fielder Cameron Maybin.

    He followed up his four-hit game Wednesday with an even better line in the box score, going 4-for-4 with a pair of homers and 3 RBI.

    Maybin has eight hits in his last 10 at-bats. He's the first Padres player to have consecutive four-hit games since Reggie Sanders in 1999.

    Cam is one of the many position players who seem to enjoy getting away from PETCO Park. He's hitting .213 at home and .354 on the road this season.

    On Saturday, Aaron Harang takes the mound for the Padres. The Patrick Henry High alum can become the first pitcher in the NL to reach six wins.
