Bad Everth. No cookie for you.

The Padres got on the board early, thanks to Everth Cabrera showing off his speed. He reached on an infield single, stole second, and then came home on Jesus Guzman's RBI single.

No one else scored until the bottom of the third, when a two out error by Everth Cabrera kept the Rockies alive and three unearned runs crossed the plate. Former rocky Jason Marquis was moving along nicely until the error, but struggled to keep the game close, allowing solo shots to Wilin Rosario and Dexter Fowler in the fourth and fifth. He would toss one more scoreless frame before being replaced by Anthony Bass.

Bass stopped the bleeding, allowing one hit in two innings. Carlos Quentin tried to get the good guys back in the game with an RBI double in the 8th, but Jedd Gyorko avoided a golden sombrero only to hit a line drive straight to Troy Tulowitzki, ending the inning. Old Man Kotsay tried to get a two out rally going in the ninth with a single off of human rain delay Rafael Betancourt, but Yonder Alonso killed it with a three pitch strikeout.

Tyson Ross will take the mound as the Padres work to avoid a losing road trip tomorrow at 5:10 PM.
