Wil Myers added more in the fifth with a single to right to score Luis Urias to go up 3-0 after five.
The Padres added the nails in the coffin in the eighth with Urias’ fielder’s choice RBI that scored Eric Hosmer. Josh Naylor came in to pinch hit and launched a three-run home run to right. The Rockies got one run in the ninth, but the Padres take game two 7-1.
