DENVER (AP) - Ubaldo Jimenez pitched six effective innings, Troy Tulowitzki hit a two-run double and the Colorado Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 4-2 on Sunday to take the deciding game in the first series of the season between the NL West rivals.
Miguel Olivo homered and Seth Smith added an RBI single for the Rockies, who bounced back from Saturday night's 5-4 loss to the Padres in 14 innings, the longest game in the majors this season. Franklin Morales got three outs for his second save in as many chances.
Jimenez (2-0) allowed two runs and seven hits. He also struck out seven while improving to 3-0 with a 2.70 ERA in his last three starts against San Diego dating to July 2008.
