SAN DIEGO — After being no-hit over the first five innings, the Colorado Rockies broke through for three runs in the seventh inning against San Diego right-hander Ian Kennedy on Thursday afternoon to defeat the Padres 3-1 and gain a split of their four-game National League West series at Petco Park. Kennedy retired the first 12 Rockies he faced before walking shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to open the fifth. An inning later, Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado stopped Kennedy’s no-hit bid with a lead-off double that struck the third-base bag. In the seventh, however, the Rockies broke through to erase a 1-0 Padres lead.

SAN DIEGO — Third baseman Chase Headley was out of the San Diego Padres’ lineup Wednesday night with what was described as a mild strain of his right biceps muscle. Even though Headley is off to a terrible start in his pre-free agency season, any hint of an injury to Headley raises concerns for the Padres. San Diego’s weakest position in terms of depth is third base — unless the club wants to move Jedd Gyorko back to third and try to find a replacement at second base. For the second time this season, infielder/outfielder Alexi Amarista started at third for the Padres on Wednesday night.

Pitcher Juan Nicasio dug down and gave the Colorado Rockies exactly what they needed. After a rough first inning, Nicasio settled in and threw six solid innings to help save a depleted bullpen as the Rockies got a rare road win with a 3-2 win over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night. With set-up reliever Rex Brothers sitting for a couple of days after two consecutive rough outings, and the rest of the bullpen having been used often recently, Colorado hoped Nicasio could pitch deep on Tuesday night. The right-hander couldn’t have started much worse by allowing two runs in the first inning when the first four Padres each got a hit.

The Cleveland Indians snapped a three-game string of poor starts by their pitchers, but they couldn’t find enough offense to protect against a late bullpen collapse the last time they took the field. In Wednesday night’s opener of a weather-shortened series against the Detroit Tigers, Zach McAllister draws the tough task of opposing Anibal Sanchez, who looks to continue his dominance over the Indians. Cleveland (6-7) had three straight starters surrender five earned runs while failing to throw five innings prior to Sunday, when Corey Kluber limited the White Sox to two runs over 7 1-3 innings. The Indians took a 3-2 lead heading into the ninth before Alexei Ramirez hit a two-run walkoff homer off closer John Axford to send Cleveland to a 4-3 loss, its fourth in five games.

SAN DIEGO — Jedd Gyorko will remain in San Diego for a long time to come. The second baseman signed a five-year contract extension with the San Diego Padres on Monday, a deal that could erase the first two seasons of his free agent eligibility. The contract guarantees Gyorko $35 million through the 2019 season with a possibility of $47 million if the Padres exercise a club option for Although extensions to younger players haven’t paid dividends yet for the Padres — left-handed pitcher Cory Luebke and center fielder Cameron Maybin were injured shortly after signing their deals in the spring of 2012 — general manager Josh Byrnes believes Gyorko will be different.

The San Diego Padres think so much of second baseman Jedd Gyorko that they gave him a hefty raise and he’s only 13 games into his second full big league season. San Diego essentially buys out one year of free agency and possibly two. ”These contracts make a lot of sense for both sides,” general manager Josh Byrnes said. ”In this case we potentially buy out two years of free agency.

A handful of San Diego regulars still aren’t hitting their weight, and the Padres had only six hits against Max Scherzer and the Detroit Tigers on Sunday. That would normally have the Padres heading for a loss, especially at Petco Park. Thanks, though, to big right-hander Tyson Ross and some timely hitting, the Padres beat the Tigers 5-1 to take two of three for their first series win this season. Ross outdueled Scherzer, the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner, and Jedd Gyorko and Xavier Nady homered.
