Colorado Rockies right-hander Jon Gray was pretty good.

And the offense showed it might be coming around a little more.

Put it together and it added up to the Rockies 6-2 win over the Padres Wednesday night at Coors Field.

Gray went six-and-a-third innings and allowed only two runs on five hits with one walk and five strikeouts. He picked up the win and is now 10-7.

Gray joins Kyle Freeland (11-7) and German Marquez (11-9) as the Rockies' 10-game winners.

Each team scored in the first inning. Carlos Gonzalez's RBI single tied the game at one.

The Rockies took the lead with two runs in the second. Tony Wolters' tripled to bring home Ian Desmond and then Wolters scored on pitcher Jacob Nix's wild pitch.

Ian Desmond gave the Rockies some breathing room with a two-run triple in the sixth inning.
