Rockies rally in ninth to beat Padres

September 12, 2009|Associated Press

SAN DIEGO — Yorvit Torrealba hit a three-run double in the ninth inning against closer Heath Bell to lift the Colorado Rockies to a 4-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Friday night.

Torrealba's bases-loaded hit into the left-center-field gap allowed the Rockies to pull out a comeback win and stay two games behind the first-place Dodgers in the NL West. The Dodgers beat the Giants, 10-3, at San Francisco.

Colorado had just three hits against five Padres pitchers before they got to Bell, the NL co-leader with 37 saves, for four runs, three hits and two walks in the ninth.
