Giants Vs. Rockies Final Score: Ryan Spilborghs, Ty Wigginton Lead Colorado To 10-2 Victory Over San Francisco

The Colorado Rockies were able to salvage their three-game series with the San Francisco Giants with an offensive showing in the 10-2 victory on Wednesday afternoon. Ty Wigginton struck the first big blow of the game when he hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the second inning for a 4-1 lead (It was Wigginton's first home run with the Rockies and his 1,000th career hit). In the bottom of the seventh, pinch-hitting for the pitcher, Ryan Spilborghs sent one over the right field wall for three more runs and the game's final score.

Seth Smith continued his hot hitting with two RBI singles and he scored three times. Troy Tulowitzki also scored three runs as well as collecting three hits. Two of Tulowitzki's hits were doubles off of Matt Cain, who allowed six runs in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out six Rockies, half of the team's total for the game.

Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa (3-0) avoided the first-inning trap that Esmil Rogers and Ubaldo Jimenez fell into in the previous two games. Overcoming one run allowed in the first inning, De La Rosa settled down and didn't allow another run until the sixth inning. Using his slider exceptionally well, De La Rosa went seven innings and allowed two runs on four hits and two walks. He struck out six and has an ERA of 3.00.

Relievers Rafael Betancourt (1 IP, 2K) and Huston Street (1 IP, 2K) kept the Giants off the board to finish the game. Street struck out Pat Burrell to end the game.

The Giants were without Pablo Sandoval because he suffered a triceps strain during batting practice. The club sent Brandon Belt down to the minors while activating Cody Ross off the disabled list. He hit fifth and went 0-for-4.

The Rockies (13-5) hold a three-game lead over the Giants for the NL West lead. Following and off day on Thursday, the Rockies will take to the road for a three-game series with the Florida Marlins starting Friday night.
