DENVER (AP) — Mat Latos snapped a personal 10-game losing streak and Ryan Ludwick homered in the San Diego Padres' 8-2 win over the slumping Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

Latos (1-5) hadn't won since Sept. 7, 2010, and his 10 straight losing decisions were one shy of the club record set by right-hander Gary Ross in 1969.

Padres manager Bud Black said before the game he sensed Latos was about to snap out of his funk, saying part of the problem was how much pressure the 23-year-old right-hander was putting on himself. Latos displayed no such duress in allowing just two runs, one earned, and four hits in 5 2-3 crisp innings.
