DENVER (AP) -- Clayton Richard pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Carlos Quentin homered and the surging San Diego Padres beat the Colorado Rockies 5-4 on Friday night.
Cameron Maybin had three hits for the Padres, who have won two straight and 10 of 11.
Jordan Pacheco, Wilin Rosario and Andrew Brown homered for Colorado, which has dropped two straight.
Richard (12-12) had his sixth consecutive strong outing to even his record following a slow start to the season. He was 6-10 after losing to the Dodgers on July 13, but came on strong in August, winning his last three starts and finishing the month 5-1.
Rockies starter Alex White (2-7) failed to pitch past the fourth inning for his fifth straight start. He allowed three runs and four hits and walked three in 3 2-3 innings.
