Seth Smith homered against his former team early, Carlos Quentin added a two-run, pinch-hit home run, and the San Diego Padres hung on to beat the Colorado Rockies 8-5 Saturday night.
San Diego staked Robbie Erlin (3-4) to a 6-1 lead by roughing up previously unbeaten Jordan Lyles (5-1), who walked a career-high six batters in a season-low 3 1-3 inning outing.
The Rockies got an early home run from Troy Tulowitzki and chipped away at the Padres' lead, pulling to within a run on Carlos Gonzalez's two-run double in the sixth inning.
Quentin rebuilt the cushion in the seventh, following Yasmani Grandal's two-out single with a drive off reliever Chris Martin that sailed into the left field bleachers for his first home run of the season.
Huston Street, also a former Rockie, got three outs for his 13th save in as many opportunities.
