Hawpe, Padres overcome 6-run deficit, beat Rockies

DENVER (AP) - Brad Hawpe, who played seven seasons for Colorado, hit a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning to complete a six-run comeback Saturday and give the San Diego Padres a 9-7 victory over the Rockies.

Hawpe connected off Huston Street (0-1) for his second home run of the season. Hawpe was with the Rockies from 2004-2010.

Colorado trailed 7-1 before scoring four times in the seventh inning and tying it with two runs in the eighth.

The Padres got 4 2-3 hitless innings from their bullpen, including Mike Adams (2-0), who pitched the eighth. Heath Bell earned his ninth save in 10 opportunities and career save No. 100.
