DENVER — José Iglesias drove in a career-high six runs with a homer and two singles, and the Colorado Rockies continued their home domination of San Diego with a 10-6 win over the Padres on Wednesday night.

Colorado has won 12 of its last 13 against San Diego at Coors Field since the start of the 2021 season.

Sam Hilliard had three hits and scored three runs and Robert Stephenson (1-1) got the win with an inning of relief for the Rockies, who saw manager Bud Black ejected in the sixth inning.

Iglesias had an RBI single in the Rockies’ three-run fifth, a three-run homer in the sixth and drove in two more with a single in the seventh when Colorado took the lead of reliever Tayler Scott (0-1).

Before Iglesias’ homer, the Rockies nearly ran themselves out of a rally. With no outs, Garrett Hampson grounded to first baseman Eric Hosmer and Elías Díaz broke for home from third base. Hosmer threw to catcher Austin Nola, who turned to tag Díaz but Díaz ran around the attempt as Nola dropped the ball.

Home plate umpire Jerry Meals ruled Díaz out for running outside the baseline and Black was ejected for arguing the call with Meals.

Jake Cronenworth’s ninth homer of the season and a two-run fifth off starter Chad Kuhl helped the Padres build a 3-0 lead for Joe Musgrove. He was tagged for three runs in the fifth, but San Diego went back in front, 6-3, with a big sixth inning.

TWO MUCH FUN

The Padres scored five of their six runs with two outs. Kuhl got the first two batters in the fifth before four walks and a single brought home two. In the sixth, a double, single and two walks produced three more runs after there were two outs.
