Kemp, Wallace power Padres to 5-3 win over Rockies
SAN DIEGO (AP) Matt Kemp and Brett Wallace hit back-to-back home runs and Andrew Cashner recovered from a shaky first inning to lead the San Diego Padres to a 6-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.
Kemp's homer in the fourth was the first of the game against Rockies starter Eddie Butler, who retired the first 11 batters. Wallace followed with an opposite-field shot into the first deck in left.
Cashner (2-2) gave up a home run to the first batter he faced, Charlie Blackmon, and fell behind 2-0 in the first inning.
Colorado added a run in the second when Trevor Story singled home DJ LeMahieu for a 3-0 lead.
Having exited his last outing after 2 2/3 innings, Cashner lasted six innings while allowing three runs and six hits. He walked three and struck out six.
