SAN DIEGO (AP) — Jurickson Profar hit an RBI double with no outs in the ninth inning and the San Diego Padres, who got a brilliant performance from right-hander Dinelson Lamet, beat the Colorado Rockies 1-0 for their sixth victory in eight games. Pinch-hitter Greg Garcia started the winning rally when he poked a opposite-field single past third baseman Nolan Arenado leading off the ninth. He was replaced by pinch-runner Jorge Mateo, who scored on Profar’s double to right off Carlos Estévez. Drew Pomeranz (1-1) pitched the ninth for the win.
