By  | 

DENVER (AP) -- Kyle Blanks hit a two-run homer and Eric Stults tossed seven solid innings, helping the San Diego Padres to a 4-2 win over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night.

Everth Cabrera had three hits and stole two more bases, running his season total to a major league-leading 28.

Jeff Francis (2-4) struggled in his first start since coming off the disabled list with a strained left groin. He allowed four runs and six hits in four innings.

Stults (5-5) never really ran into trouble against his former team, giving up seven hits and two runs (one earned) for his first win in four starts.

Dale Thayer pitched out of a jam in the eighth and Luke Gregerson closed out the ninth for his second save in three chances.
