Senzatela Sharp Over 6 Innings, Rockies Hold Off Padres 9-6


Antonio Senzatela pitched six innings of one-run ball, designated hitter Matt Kemp homered for a second straight game and the Colorado Rockies held off the San Diego Padres 9-6. The Rockies moved to 6-2.


Their mark is tied for the team’s second-best start in franchise history. Senzatela was the latest to turn in an efficient performance. Colorado’s starters rank first in the majors with a 2.00 ERA.


The right-hander allowed four hits, walked one and struck out six to help the Rockies take two of three from San Diego and win their third straight series. Kemp hit a two-run homer off Zach Davies in the fourth.
