Gazette Premium Content Wild pitch, throwing error gives Padres win 5-4 over Rockies

The Associated Press - Published: April 14, 2014

SAN DIEGO - The Padres scored twice in the eighth inning on Rex Brothers' wild pitch and catcher Edwin Rosario's errant throw back to the plate, lifting San Diego to a 5-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night.

The Rockies held a one-run lead when Brothers walked the bases loaded with two outs. Facing Yasmani Grandal, Brothers unleashed a wild throw. As Edwin Rosario retrieved the pitch, he turned and threw wildly back to Brothers covering the plate.

The ball got past Brothers as Xavier Nady scored and, as the ball sailed past the mound, Seth Smith scored from second base as the Padres took a 5-4 lead.

Brothers (1-2) allowed a game-winning homer to Brandon Crawford on Sunday in San Francisco's 5-4 win in 10 innings.

Rosario hit a two-run homer off Eric Stults with a drive into the left-field seats in the fifth inning to give Colorado a 4-0 lead.
