DENVER — Cory Luebke threw seven efficient innings and Chase Headley tied a team record with three doubles, helping the San Diego Padres snap a four-game skid with a 7-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night.
Luebke (1-1) breezed through the Rockies lineup on a brisk night, giving up six hits and one run.
Lately, the Padres have made themselves quite at home at Coors Field, winning seven of their past nine in the hitter friendly park. They did a bulk of their damage with doubles, hitting seven for the game.
Jeremy Guthrie (1-1) was feeling under the weather, but gave it a go despite a sore throat. With the bullpen taxed from so much recent work, Guthrie really had no choice but to hang in there as long as possible. The righty allowed six runs and nine hits before being lifted for a pinch hitter.
