    Yu Darvish's fourth pitch of the game was taken deep to right. No panic that this just might be a long night at hitter friendly Coors Field. Darvish settled in after surrendering a leadoff homer and earned his career-high-tying 16th win as the San Diego Padres climbed into second place in the NL wild-card race by beating the Colorado Rockies 9-3 on Saturday.

    Trejo, Tovar lead young Rockies over Padres 4-3 in 10

    Rookie Alan Trejo singled in the winning run in the 10th inning, highly touted prospect Ezequiel Tovar picked up hits on the first two pitches he saw in the big leagues, and the youthful Colorado Rockies stalled the San Diego Padres’ playoff progress with a 4-3 victory on Friday night. Randal Grichuk homered and Yonathan Daza added a two-run triple for the last-place Rockies, who started six rookies, including an all-rookie infield. “We're fiery and we're energetic and we just want to come up here and produce,” Trejo said.
