DENVER - Dexter Fowler hit an early two-run homer and Jhoulys Chacin pitched effectively into the seventh inning, helping the Colorado Rockies to a 9-1 win over San Diego on Sunday for their first sweep of the Padres at Coors Field in 10 years.

Wilin Rosario broke open a tight game with a three-run homer in the seventh as the Rockies improved to 5-1, their best start since 1995.

The Padres -- now 1-5 -- face the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday at Petco Park, after the sixth-worst start in franchise history.
