SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Jeremy Guthrie pitched four solid innings, Willin Rosario hit a three-run homer during Colorado’s eight-run seventh inning and the Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 11-2 on Monday.

Brandon Wood, Rosario and Chad Tracy drove in Colorado’s first three runs.
Left-hander Cory Luebke had his second straight scoreless outing for the Padres, giving up one hit in three innings.
