SAN DIEGO (AP) - Pinch-hitter Nick Hundley delivered a three-run double in the seventh inning that lifted the San Diego Padres to a 5-2 win over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

San Diego has won five of six games. The Rockies have dropped five of six.

After reliever Roy Oswalt (0-5) walked home the tying run, Hundley hit a sharp grounder down the third-base line off Wilton Lopez to clear the bases.

Nick Vincent (4-2) pitched one inning for the win. Huston Street worked the ninth for his 29th save in 30 chances.
