SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa took a one-hit shutout into the sixth inning and Colorado held on to give the left-hander his straight win against the San Diego Padres, 5-4 on Wednesday night.
De La Rosa lifted his record at Petco Park to 3-0 with a 1.88 ERA. His winning streak against San Diego spans eight starts.
The Rockies were leading 4-0 in the sixth when Carlos Quentin hit his 11th home run, a two-run shot to straight away center field, scoring Chase Headley, who had walked. That was all for De La Rosa (9-5), who allowed two hits over five innings with four walks and four strikeouts.
Andrew Cashner (5-5) went five innings for the Padres, giving up three runs, two earned, on eight hits. He struck out five, walked two and threw a wild pitch that led to a Rockies run in the fifth.
