Rockies top Padres, pad lead in bid for 2nd wild card

(TSX / STATS) -- SAN DIEGO -- The Colorado Rockies took a significant step toward the National League's second wild-card berth Sunday afternoon with an 8-4 victory over the San Diego Padres at Petco Park.

The win, coupled with losses by closest pursuers Milwaukee and St. Louis, gives the Rockies a two-game lead over the Brewers and a 2 1/2-game advantage on the Cardinals entering the final week of the regular season.

Colorado returns home from a 2-5 road trip to finish with six games at Coors Field against the Miami Marlins and Los Angeles Dodgers. The Cardinals and Brewers play each other over the final weekend.
