Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Wilin Rosario and Dexter Fowler each belted solo home runs to back six strong innings from Jeff Francis, as the Colorado Rockies came through with a 5-2 victory over the San Diego Padres to make their 2013 home opener a success. Troy Tulowitzki added two hits, including a two-run double in the third inning, to help the Rockies to a third straight win following an extra-inning Opening Day loss at Milwaukee on Monday. Francis (1-0) did his part as well, limiting the Padres to five hits and not allowing a run after the first inning. The left-hander also struck out five while issuing just one walk. San Diego starter Jason Marquis (0-1) surrendered all five Colorado runs, though just two were earned as the result of an error by Everth Cabrera that led to the Rockies scoring three times in the third, over six innings of work. Jesus Guzman paced the Padres offensively by going 2-for-4 with an RBI in the setback, San Diego's third in four outings to begin the season.

Final Score: San Francisco 1, St. Louis 0

San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Angel Pagan's fourth-inning, bases-loaded walk was the lone score, and Barry Zito tossed seven scoreless innings, as the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants topped St. Louis, 1-0, in the opener of a three-game weekend set. Zito (1-0) surrendered only three hits and walked three while fanning four for the Giants, who raised their second championship banner in three seasons in front of a sellout crowd on Friday. Sergio Romo tossed a perfect ninth for his third save. Jake Westbrook (0-1) was the hard-luck loser, charged with an unearned run and six walks on six hits in 6 2/3 frames for the Cardinals, who have lost three of four to start the year. St. Louis has scored one run over its last three games in the Bay Area, dating back to Games 6 and 7 of last year's NLCS, won by the Giants after they trailed three games to one.
