SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Jeremy Guthrie pitched four solid innings, Willin Rosario hit a three-run homer during Colorado's eight-run seventh inning and the Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 11-2 on Monday.
Guthrie, acquired in a Feb. 6 trade with Baltimore, gave up a home run to Cameron Maybin to lead off the game. The right-hander allowed just one hit the rest of the way while striking out three.
Brandon Wood, Rosario and Chad Tracy drove in Colorado's first three runs.
Left-hander Cory Luebke had his second straight scoreless outing for the Padres, giving up one hit in three innings.
