Padres pound Rockies in finale in San Diego

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Clayton Richard struck out a career-high 10 and drove in two runs, and Scott Hairston hit a three-run double and finished with four RBIs as the San Diego Padres routed the Colorado Rockies 13-3 on Wednesday to avoid a three-game sweep.

Every Padres regular had at least one hit and everyone scored at least one run except Hairston. Hairston had four RBIs for the second time in three games and drove in his older brother, Jerry Jr., twice. Chris Denorfia scored three runs.

The NL West-leading Padres sent 11 batters to the plate in the six-run fourth inning that chased Rockies starter Jeff Francis. The first seven batters reached base and the first six scored. Everth
Cabrera hit a bloop RBI double to start the scoring and Richard followed with an RBI single to right.
