'Pen signs off on Padres win
Rox run into bad luck
With the bases loaded and no outs in the fourth, the Rox were unable to break the game open, as Jeff Francis' line drive resulted in a double play, and Colorado left empty-handed. Garrett Atkins and Yorvit Torrealba homered, but it wasn't enough for Francis, who allowed five runs.

Series at a glance:
Bullpen preserves victory
Chris Young lasted five-plus innings, but the dependable Padres bullpen picked him up. Cla Meredith extended his scoreless-innings streak to 27 1/3, Scott Linebrink held the Rox to one run in the eighth and Trevor Hoffman threw a perfect ninth for his 37th save this year and 473rd of his career.
