DENVER (AP) -- Nick Hundley homered and drove in two runs, Will Venable had three hits, and the San Diego Padres rallied to beat the Colorado Rockies 7-5 on Tuesday night.

Jedd Gyorko also went deep for the second straight night for the Padres, who rebounded from a 14-2 loss to the Rockies on Monday.

San Diego beat the Rockies for just the fourth time in 15 games this season.

Charlie Culberson had two hits and two RBIs, and Nolan Arenado and DJ LeMahieu also had two hits each for Colorado, which had its four-game winning streak snapped.

The Padres got the win despite an uncharacteristic start from left-hander Eric Stults, who was 3-0 with a 3.35 ERA in six career starts against the Rockies. He had been dominant against them this season, going 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA, but that changed in a hurry.
