Padres Pull Off Another Win Against Rockies

Derek Norris hit a two-run double to cap off a four-run eighth inning as the Padres rallied for a 7-6 win Tuesday over the host Colorado Rockies.

Leadoff hitter Wil Myers contributed three of the Friars’ 13 hits, including an RBI single in the eighth, and Clint Barmes hit his first home run of the season as they overcame a three-run deficit.

It’s the sixth time the Padres (10-5) have come from behind to win already this season.

Brandon Maurer picked up the win with a scoreless inning of relief in the seventh. He picked up starter Brandon Morrow, who allowed five runs on six hits in six innings. Craig Kimbrel gave up a leadoff homer to former Padre Nick Hundley in the ninth, but nailed down his fifth save.

Hundley also had an RBI triple for the Rockies (7-7).

The two teams play again Wednesday at 5:40 p.m.
