Replace the
plot(x,y)
command with
area(x,y,'FaceColor',[1 0 0])

the first two inputs to patch can be thought of as points that define vertices of some polygon. the vectors x and y are the lower parts of that polygon. By adding a point (0,100) to the set of vertices, we get the top left corner of the polygon. Without that vertex, the behavior was as you said above, only the "upper portion" was colored instead of the "whole upper part".
