DENVER — Nick Hundley homered in the fifth inning to start the comeback and drove in the tiebreaking run with an eighth-inning single off Rafael Betancourt, and the San Diego Padres dealt the NL wild card-leading Colorado Rockies a disheartening 5-4 loss Thursday night.

Troy Tulowitzki gave the Rockies an early 3-0 lead with a three-run homer, his 30th, off Clayton Richard in the first inning, but Colorado's bats went silent after that.

Joe Beimel (1-6) took the loss for Colorado, giving up one run while getting only two outs, as Rockies Manager Jim Tracy used five relievers after Jason Hammel gave up two runs in 6 1/3 innings. Rookie right-hander Luke Gregerson got five outs for his first career save in six chances.
