SAN DIEGO (AP) — Chase Headley singled in the winning run in the ninth inning to give the San Diego Padres a 3-2 win over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.

Headley's single to right-center field scored rookie Lance Zawadski from second base without a throw after Franklin Morales (0-3) intentionally walked Adrian Gonzalez.

In four plate appearances immediately following an intentional walk to Gonzalez this season, Headley is 3 for 3 with a double, home run and sacrifice fly with seven RBIs.

Zawadski led off the inning with a walk off Morales and was sacrificed to second by Tony Gwynn. After an out, Gonzalez was walked intentionally after the count went to 3-0.

Heath Bell (2-0) pitched the ninth for the win.
