SAN DIEGO (AP) - Franklin Morales allowed four hits in six innings and Wilin Rosario hit a tiebreaking groundout in a three-run seventh, lifting the Colorado Rockies over the San Diego Padres 3-1 Thursday.

Morales (1-1) allowed a solo homer to Xavier Nady leading off the fourth, a drive off the facing of the second deck in left field, and Ian Kennedy (1-2) took a one-hit shutout into the seventh.

Corey Dickerson reached on a one-out double, Troy Tulowitzki walked and Justin Morneau lined a ball to right field. Chris Denorfia broke in, then retreated as the ball went over him for an RBI double.

Rosario grounded out to shortstop as Tulowitzki scored for a 2-1 lead, and Nolan Arenado followed with a run-scoring single.
