Senzatela sharp over 6 innings, Rockies hold off Padres 9-6


DENVER (AP) — 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 on Sunday, 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. 

The Padres, now 6-4 to open the pandemic-shortened season, begin a three-game series Monday with the Los Angeles Dodgers at Petco Park. Right-hander Chris Paddack, who outdueled the Diamondbacks on Opening Day, is scheduled to start against Walker Buehler.
