Gregorio Petit drove in the tying run and scored the winner on a strikeout-wild pitch in the sixth inning to seal a doubleheader sweep by the Tucson Padres over host Colorado Springs on Thursday night.

Tucson (44-37) won the opener 7-4 and took the nightcap 5-4. The second game was a makeup game for a contest postponed by snow April 10.

With the Padres trailing 4-3 in the sixth inning of Game 2, Petit singled to center to score Daniel Robertson from second. Two batters later, Petit scored from third when Rene Rivera struck out but Mike McClendon's pitch got away.

Ben Francisco, Petit and Jonathan Galvez each drove in two runs as Tucson battled back from 1-0 and 3-2 deficits to win the opener.

Brad Brach picked up the win in relief of starter Brandon Kloess. Brach (2-1) pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings, giving up two hits and no walks.

Colt Hynes earned his fourth save of the season with 1 2/3 hitless innings. He struck out three.
