Murphy's 1st big league hits help Rockies beat Padres 10-2

DENVER (AP) Tom Murphy had an RBI single and a home run - his first major league hits - and Colorado overcame the loss of starting pitcher Yohan Flande after he was struck in the left leg by a line drive and the Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 10-2 on Saturday night.

Charlie Blackmon had three hits, including an RBI single, and scored three times, and Nolan Arenado singled twice to drive in two runs for Colorado, which has won six of its last nine games.

Jedd Gyorko homered and doubled and Justin Upton had an RBI single for San Diego.

Christian Bergman (3-0) pitched 3 1-3 innings of one-run relief after coming on in the third inning to replace Flande, who was hit in the left knee area by a line drive hit by Gyorko, who had a double.
