Up three runs going into the ninth inning at Petco Park the Padres have to like their chances. In Colorado, not so much.

Special Section: San Diego Padres

The Rockies sent eight batters to the plate in the bottom of the ninth and pushed across three runs to tie the game. Luke Gregerson, who relieved Dale Thayer to start the inning, never saw the end of it. With two outs and his first blown save under the reliever's belt, manager Bud Black gave Gregerson the hook. 

Things went from bad to worse in the tenth. After the Padres failed to score in the top of the inning, Colorado pushed across the winning run on a Dexter Fowler two-out single off of Joe Thatcher.

It was a typical Coors Field game that saw a combined 15-runs on 26-hits. The Rockies 8-7 win got them a split of the four game series.

The Padres are back at Petco Park Monday night, beginning a six game home stand that starts with a three game series against the Braves.
