The last time the Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres met, tempers flared and punches were thrown. This time, the Padres let their bats do all the damage.

Carlos Asuaje homered and had a career-high four RBIs, wholesale nfl jerseys china Franchy Cordero went deep during a nine-run seventh inning and San Diego romped past the Rockies 13-5 on Monday night.

Asuaje hit a three-run shot in a four-run first and Cordero added a two-run drive during a 45-minute seventh for San Diego. Wil Myers had four hits and two RBIs, and Eric Hosmer drew a career-high four walks to go with his two hits.

The Padres won for just the second time in seven games.

''It was a fun night for the guys,'' manager Andy Green said. ''This is one of those days you get to smile and laugh and take aggressive at-bats. You want to see that kind of carry over to the next day.''

It was the eighth meeting of the year between the teams and their first since a bench-clearing brawl on April 11. The scuffle ensued after Padres starter Luis Perdomo threw a 96 mph fastball behind Rockies star Nolan Arenado, who charged the mound and threw punches at Perdomo.

Suspensions were handed out to Arenado, Perdomo and Colorado outfielder Gerardo Parra for their roles in the fight.

''It's over,'' Colorado manager Bud Black said before the game.

Arenado and Trevor Story homered for the Rockies, who dropped to 3-7 at home. Colorado starter Chad Bettis, who had allowed two runs or fewer in his first four starts of the year, dug himself a 4-0 hole in the first but left after five innings with a 5-4 lead.

In the seventh, Jake McGee (0-1) got just one out and gave up four runs. Scott Oberg came in and yielded another five runs while getting only one out. Antonio Senzatela finally closed the door in the inning after allowing three hits and no runs.

''It's definitely something for the moment to wash (away),'' Oberg jerseys wholesale china ''But moving forward, learn from the mistakes and try to do our best not to repeat them.''

In all, San Diego sent 15 batters to the plate in the inning. The Padres had eight hits and four walks. Pinch-hitter Matt Szczur, Cordero and Myers each got two hits.
