Aaron Cook pitched six solid innings, Clint Barmes hit a three-run homer and Seth Smith added a two-run shot to lead the Colorado Rockies to a 10-1 win over the San Diego Padres last night.
Cook continued his dominance over the Padres by getting out of two bases-loaded jams while only allowing one run. Cook raised his career record against the Padres to 13-4 and improved to 9-3 on the season.
He allowed a run in the first and pitched out of trouble in every inning except the second when he had his only 1-2-3 inning. The right-hander allowed eight hits, walked four and struck out eight.
Barmes homered in the sixth inning, his 11th, off Mike Ekstrom to increase the Rockies' lead to 7-1.
Smith homered off Ryan Webb in the eighth.
Game 2 of the four-game series is tonight at 8:05 (Mountain time) in San Diego.
