SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Rookie Jedd Gyorko hit a go-ahead homer leading off the eighth inning to give the San Diego Padres a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night.

Gyorko's shot off Matt Belisle (5-6) came right after the Rockies tied the game at 1 in the eighth inning on a San Diego error.

Gyorko's 17th home run just barely cleared the right field wall as it hit the top padding and avoided the leaping attempt of right fielder Michael Cuddyer.

Luke Gregerson (6-7) got the win and Huston Street picked up his 28th save by getting the final three outs.
