Key hit in playoff helps Smith make Rockies' roster
Smith tripled in the sixth and scored on Kaz Matsui's shallow sacrifice fly for a 6-5 lead Monday against the Padres. The Rockies won 9-8 in 13 innings for the NL Wild Card spot.
The Rockies, who went 14-1 down the stretch, open Wednesday at Philadelphia in their first postseason series since 1995.
Left off the roster for the division series against the Phillies was right-hander Jorge Julio, who surrendered a two-run homer to Scott Hairston in the top of the 13th before the Rockies rallied for three runs.
