DENVER (AP) Jon Gray struck out a franchise-record 16 and pitched a four-hitter to lead the Colorado Rockies to an 8-0 victory over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night.

Gray (10-8) threw 113 pitches in surpassing Darryl Kile's 14-strikeout performance on August 20, 1998.

Tom Murphy homered twice and had five RBIs for the Rockies. Nolan Arenado added his NL-leading 38th home run of the season.

Colorado has won the first two games in the three-game series, which included an 8-7 walk-off win on Friday night.

Edwin Jackson (4-6) gave up 10 hits and eight runs in 4 1/3 innings. The Padres did not put a runner in scoring position.
