After the Padres erupted for nine runs in the seventh inning in a 13-5 win on Monday night, the Colorado Rockies returned the favor, blowing out the Padres 8-0 Tuesday night at Coors Field.
Trevor Story blasted a grand slam in a five-run second inning and left-hander Kyle Freeland took it from there.
Freeland threw seven scoreless innings, allowing only three hits and two walks while striking out eight.
The Rockies go for the series in Wednesday's rubber game. Jon Gray will go against Tyson Ross. Coverage begins at 12:30 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
