Jose Iglesias homered among his three hits and drove in a career-high six runs, Sam Hilliard had three hits and the Colorado Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 10-6 on Wednesday night in Denver.
Randal Grichuk, Ryan McMahon, Charlie Blackmon and Elias Diaz each added two hits, and Robert Stephenson (1-1) tossed an inning of relief for the Rockies to pick up the win.
Jake Cronenworth homered and doubled while Eric Hosmer and Nomar Mazara each had a pair of hits for San Diego, which blew a pair of three-run leads.
Cronenworth’s homer in the first put the Padres ahead 1-0, and they added two more runs off starter Chad Kuhl in the fifth. Kuhl walked Cronenworth, gave up a single to Manny Machado and then walked Mazara and Hosmer to bring in a run.
Jhoulys Chacin relieved Kuhl and walked Ha-Seong Kim to plate another to make it 3-0.
Kuhl allowed three runs on seven hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out two.

Hampson scored on a groundout and Joe moved to third on a single by Blackmon before scoring on a sacrifice fly from Brendan Rodgers.
The Padres responded with a rally of their own in the sixth. Trent Grisham walked and scored on Cronenworth’s double, and Mazara and Hosmer had RBI singles off Jake Bird to make it 6-3.
Colorado answered in its half of the sixth. Diaz doubled and moved to third on Hilliard’s single, which ended Musgrove’s night.

Iglesias then tied it with his third homer of the season, off Nabil Crismatt.
Musgrove allowed five runs on nine hits and struck out four in five-plus innings.
Colorado went ahead in the seventh off Tayler Scott (0-1) on an RBI single from Hilliard and a two-run single by Iglesias.
