Fowler, Rutledge help Rockies rally past Padres

San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - Dexter Fowler and Josh Rutledge clubbed back- to-back homers in the top of the ninth inning to lift the Colorado Rockies to a 7-5 win over the San Diego Padres in the opener of a three-game set at Petco Park.

The Rockies erased a two-run deficit in the eighth, capitalizing on a costly San Diego error, then Fowler and Rutledge took Padres closer Huston Street (0-1) deep in the next frame.

Fowler, who also homered in the fifth, broke a 5-5 tie with a blast to right field. Rutledge then cleared the wall in left with a line-drive shot.

San Diego went 1-2-3 in the bottom of the ninth, with Rafael Betancourt earning his fourth save of the season.
