DENVER (AP) — Tommy Pham hit a three-run homer in the ninth after Fernando Tatis Jr. tied it with two outs and the San Diego Padres rallied for an 8-7 win over Colorado to spoil the Rockies’ home opener.

Pham sent a fastball from closer Wade Davis over the left-center wall on a 3-2 count to give the Padres an 8-5 lead.

The Padres then survived a scare in the ninth. Kirby Yates surrendered a run-scoring single to Charlie Blackmon and then walked Ryan McMahon with the bases loaded to make it 8-7.

He was taken out for Drew Pomeranz, who got pinch-hitter Chris Owings to fly out and end the game.

The Padres and Rockies face off again on Saturday at Coors Field at 5:10 p.m.
