DENVER (AP) - Cory Luebke took a no-hitter into the sixth inning, Cameron Maybin and Aaron Cunningham homered and the San Diego Padres beat the slumping Colorado Rockies 8-2 Monday night.
Maybin, Cunningham and Jason Bartlett had two hits each for San Diego, which has won three of four.
Mark Ellis homered for Colorado's only hit of the game. The Rockies have lost five straight and six of seven.
The Padres have never thrown a no-hitter in their 43-year history, and 19 times they've held an opponent hitless into the eighth. The last time was July 9 when five pitchers held the Los Angeles Dodgers hitless through 8 2-3 innings before Juan Uribe broke it up with a double.
