DENVER (AP) -- Dexter Fowler hit an early two-run homer and Jhoulys Chacin pitched effectively into the seventh inning, helping the Colorado Rockies to a 9-1 win over San Diego on Sunday for their first sweep of the Padres at Coors Field in 10 years.

Wilin Rosario broke open a tight game with a three-run homer in the seventh as the Rockies improved to 5-1, their best start since 1995 when the Blake Street Bombers began 7-1.

Chacin (1-0) turned in another efficient performance as he surrendered one run before being pulled with two outs in the seventh. Chacin threw 99 pitches, nearly becoming the first Rockies starter to throw more than 100 pitches since June 12 -- a stretch of 108 games
