Jordan Beck hit his first major league homer and drove in a career-best five runs and Austin Gomber delivered a strong start as the visiting Colorado Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 8-0 on Wednesday for their seventh straight win.

Colorado has swept back-to-back series for the first time since taking four from Arizona and three from Toronto May 27-June 2, 2019, at Coors Field and swept a series in San Diego for the first time since 2013.

The Rockies, who posted their first shutout of the season, have nearly doubled their win total for this season from eight to 15 games while holding the longest active winning streak in the majors.

Donovan Solano had two hits for the Padres, who have lost three in a row.

Colorado got to San Diego starter Michael King in the second. Brenton Doyle homered on the second pitch of the inning, Jake Cave followed with the first of his two singles, Elehuris Montero walked with one out and Beck followed with a two-run double to left to put the Rockies ahead 3-0.

The visitors extended the lead in the third. Ryan McMahon led off with a single, Doyle walked with one out and both moved up on a groundout. Jacob Stallings brought them both home with a single to make it 5-0.

It stayed that way until the sixth. Stallings singled, Montero struck out and Beck homered off reliever Jeremiah Estrada to make it 7-0. Beck added a run-scoring single in the eighth for his fifth RBI of the day.

King (3-4) allowed six runs on eight hits, walked two and struck out seven in 5 1/3 innings.

Gomber (1-2) dominated San Diego hitters to get his first victory of the season while lowering his ERA to 3.02. He gave up two hits, walked two and struck out five in six innings.

The Padres managed just four hits and didn't get a runner past second base until the seventh, when they had first and third with one out. However, Justin Lawrence worked out of the jam without any damage.
