Reynolds homers, Rockies beat Padres 6-3 to sweep series

DENVER (AP) - Mark Reynolds homered in the fourth inning, Chad Bettis pitched into the sixth and the Colorado Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 6-3 on Sunday.
 
Tony Wolters had three hits for the Rockies, who swept the heavy-hearted Padres.
 
San Diego played a day after Yangervis Solarte lost his wife, Yuliett, following a battle with cancer. The third baseman was with his family Sunday and was on the minds of everyone in the organization.
 
Adam Rosales paid tribute to his teammate with a jump and a clap at home plate after his homer in the second inning, mimicking Solarte's home run celebration.
 
Before the game, the Rockies held a moment of silence for Yuliett.
 
Bettis (13-7) allowed three runs and five hits in 5 1/3 innings. Adam Ottavino pitched the ninth for his fifth save.
 
Padres starter Jarred Cosart (0-4) couldn't pitch out of a five-run fourth.
