Rockies pummel Padres 16-0

Posted: Updated:

Tyler Anderson pitched six innings in his first start since returning from left knee surgery, Charlie Blackmon set an NL season record for RBIs by a leadoff man, and the Colorado Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 16-0 on Saturday night in a game marred by a near brawl.
  
Blackmon homered and doubled to drive in four runs, pushing his season RBI total from the leadoff position to 92 and surpassing Craig Biggio, who had 88 in 1998.
  
Pat Valaika had a pinch-hit grand slam during a six-run seventh and Carlos Gonzalez also homered for the Rockies, who stretched their lead for the second NL Wild Card berth to 3 1/2 games over Milwaukee, which lost to Miami 7-4 earlier Saturday. Colorao has won eight of its last 10 games and extended its winning streak against San Diego to seven.
  
The Padres lost their fifth straight overall, matching a season high.
