The fireworks began in the third inning of the Rockies' 6-4 win over the Padres on Wednesday.

In more ways than one.

Padres' starter Luis Perdomo threw a pitch at Rockies' third baseman Nolan Arenado, who charged the mound. Benches and bullpens cleared and in the end, five players were ejected. Arenado, Gerardo Parra, German Marquez, Perdomo and A.J. Ellis all got the heave-ho.

The Rockies then proceeded to score five runs in the third and hung on for the win.

D.J. LeMahieu had three hits and Tony Wolters drove in two runs. Reliver Antonio Senzatela got the win, going three innings after Marquez was thrown out of the game.

The Rockies now go on the road to start a four-game series against the Washington Nationals. Game one is Thursday, April 12 at 4:30 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
