Myers hits 3-run homer in 9th, Padres beat Rockies 7-5
DENVER (AP) Wil Myers hit a two-out, three-run homer in the ninth inning off closer Jake McGee, helping the San Diego Padres rally for a 7-5 win over the Colorado Rockies on Friday night.
Myers lined a 3-2 fastball from McGee (0-2) over the fence in center, capping a four-run inning.
Kevin Quackenbush (3-2) threw two innings for the win and Fernando Rodney picked up his 12th save by retiring the Rockies in order to end the game.
Trailing 5-3 and down to their last out, Alexei Ramirez and Alexi Amarista singled, followed by an RBI double from Jon Jay. The Rockies caught a break when Jay's ball bounced over the fence in left for a ground-rule double because it forced Amarista back to third when he easily would've scored the tying run.
It didn't matter as Myers followed with his sixth homer of the month.
