NL Wildcard Leader Colorado Blows Lead, Loses to San Diego
DENVER (AP) -- Nick Hundley homered to start the comeback and drove in the tiebreaking run with an eighth-inning single off Rafael Betancourt, and the San Diego Padres dealt the NL wildcard-leading Colorado Rockies a disheartening 5-4 loss Thursday night.

The Rockies' cushion in the wildcard race was trimmed to 3 1/2 games over idle Atlanta, and the San Francisco Giants had a chance to cut their deficit to three games.

Joe Beimel (1-6) took the loss for Colorado, allowing one run while getting just two outs, and Adam Russell (3-1) retired the only batter he faced to pick up the win.

Rookie right-hander Luke Gregerson got five outs for his first career save in six chances.
