With one out in the top of the first inning, Troy Tulowitzki got an infield single and Todd Helton followed with a walk. Brad Hawpe doubled to left field. It scored Tulowitzki but Helton tried to score as well and he was thrown out at the plate to end the inning. However, it was still 1-0 Rockies.

No further damage would come until the top of the third inning when the Rockies would add on to their lead. Kazuo Matsui would lead the inning off with a single. Tulo would follow with a single to make it two on with nobody out. After a flyout by Helton, Garrett Atkins drove in with Matsui with an RBI single that would knock starting pitcher Jack Cassel out of the game.

Left-hander Justin Hampson came on in relief but four pitches into his appearance, he gave up a RBI single to Brad Hawpe to make it 3-0.

The Padres would chip into the Rockies lead though as Khalil Greene hit a solo home run and Brian Giles drew a bases loaded walk in the bottom of the fifth inning to pull within one run.

In the top of the seventh inning, Todd Helton faced Padres left-reliever Joe Thatcher with two out and he smashed a single to center field to double the lead as it was now 4-2 Rockies.
