Rockies 5, Padres 3
The first baseman, who finished last season at Double-A, tied it at 3 with his bases-clearing double off the right-field wall in the fourth inning. He drove in the Rockies’ final run in the eighth with a solo homer off San Diego reliever Clay Hensley.
The Padres had taken an early lead on four singles that led to two runs in the first inning and a solo home run by Mike Piazza.
For the second consecutive spring, Padres utility man Eric Young played in a game against his son, Eric Jr., a prospect in the Rockies organization. Both Youngs started at second base and batted leadoff.
“It’s watching your son grow and mature right before your eyes,” said the elder Young, 38. “I felt like I was a young kid out there. He keeps me going.”
