DENVER -- Derek Norris' two-run double broke an eighth-inning tie and gave the Padres their third straight victory -- 7-6 at Coors Field on Tuesday night over the Rockies, who have lost five straight.
The Padres entered the eighth trailing, 5-3. Yangervis Solarte and Wil Myers delivered RBI singles off Boone Logan (0-1). In between, Logan fielded an Alexi Amarista squeeze bunt attempt and cut down a runner at the plate. But Norris doubled to right-center just past the outstretched glove of Rockies center fielder Charlie Blackmon, giving the Padres the lead and reliever Brandon Maurer (1-0) the win. The Rockies had built their lead in part on Nick Hundley's RBI triple in the fourth and Blackmon's two-run triple in the fifth.
