DENVER (AP) - Miguel Tejada tied a season high with four RBIs to help the San Diego Padres remain on top of the NL West, cooling off Colorado with a 6-4 victory Monday night and halting the Rockies' 10-game winning streak.
The Padres have a half-game lead over San Francisco. Losers of three of their previous four, they entered the game percentage points ahead of the Giants and were in danger of falling out of at least a share of the division lead for the first time since June 16.
Tejada made sure that didn't happen, hitting a two-run homer in the first inning and driving in two more with a two-out single in the fifth.
