It was a game where runs were at a premium. After Justin Morneau and Tommy Medica traded home runs in the early evening, the Padres pushed across two runs on a drag bunt to second baseman, sac bunt, an infield hit that bounced 30 feet high, a passed ball scoring the first run, a run-scoring double, a walk, and finally a ground out after a long at-bat. In spite of the fifth inning hiccup, Jorge De la Rosa left the game with a quality start in the books and the Rockies trailing 3-1. Tommy Kahnle gave up an insurance run after issuing a lead-off walk in the seventh inning. The Rockies scored their second run in the eighth inning that ended up as a 4-2 final.
The yo-yo season continues as San Diego and Colorado once again traded their places in the NL West.
