Fowler helps Rockies steal win from Padres LATE MONDAY
The Rockies' wild and crazy 12-7

victory over the San Diego Padres on Monday night went by in a blur.

Led by rookie center fielder Dexter Fowler's five stolen bases, the Rockies ran the Padres and pitcher Chris Young right out of Coors Field.

"It was perfect," Ryan Spilborghs said. "We talked about it right before the game and I told Dexter: 'If you get on base with this guy - because he's kind of slow to the plate - just go ahead and run. Just run until they stop you.' I don't think they ever stopped him. I think he's still running."

A sparse and chilly announced crowd of 18,246 saw the Rockies steal eight total bases against Young and catcher Nick Hundley. Young's slow delivery to the plate invites thievery.

Fowler's five steals tied a modern-

day, major-league rookie record (since 1900). He tied the Padres' Damian Jackson, who stole five bases against the Rockies on June 28, 1999.
