SAN DIEGO (AP) — Eric Stults pitched a four-hitter, Alexi Amarista drove in two runs and the San Diego Padres snapped their 10-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.

Stults (7-7) struck out five and walked three in the complete game, supporting his cause with two hits. He took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, when Josh Rutledge legged out an infield hit on a grounder to shortstop. He lost his shutout in the ninth when he gave up a one-out double to Wilin Rosario and a two-out RBI single to pinch-hitter Nolan Arenado.

Jhoulys Chacin (8-4) allowed one run on five hits over six innings, striking out four and walking two. The loss snapped Chacin's five-game winning streak. He had not lost since May 16.

Amarista tripled to straight away center in the third to score Everth Cabrera from first. He added a bases-loaded single off Wilton Lopez in the seventh, scoring Will Venable, who had doubled leading off. Nick Hundley and Cabrera singled to load the bases.

NOTES: Padres general manager Josh Byrnes addressed the resignation of Padres President/CEO Tom Garfinkel on Tuesday, saying he was "not completely surprised" and that "nothing has changed with me or baseball operations." ... Padres INF Yonder Alonso went 0 for 3 in his rehab start at 1B Monday and played six innings, reporting to manager Bud Black that his right hand was fine. He could be back for the weekend series with the Giants. . Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez was not in the starting lineup for the second consecutive game. Gonzalez left Sunday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks with an injury to his right middle finger. He is day to day. ... OF Dexter Fowler, who went 0 for 3 with a walk in a rehab start Monday night at Triple-A Colorado Springs, where he played again Tuesday night, could rejoin the Rockies on Friday when they play at the Dodgers, manager Walt Weiss said. Fowler has been on the disabled list since July 2 (retroactive to June 26) with a bone bruise in his right hand.
