Rox win second straight over first place Padres

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Clint Barmes hit a three-run homer and finished with four RBIs, and Carlos Gonzalez added a solo shot to lead the Colorado Rockies to a 6-3 win over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night.

The Rockies have hit six homers in two nights at spacious Petco Park, including one each night by Gonzalez.

Fans booed after Edward Mujica gave up Barmes' homer to left field on a 3-2 count with one out in the seventh. Mujica had just relieved Wade LeBlanc, who allowed Gonzalez's leadoff shot in the fourth into the sand play area beyond the right-center fence. It was the 12th for Gonzalez and the sixth for Barmes.

Barmes added an RBI single in the ninth and the Rockies won for the sixth time in eight games. Colorado committed three errors, none of which figured in the scoring.
