The Colorado Rockies lost another heartbreaker when the San Francisco Giants won on Saturday night, 3-2, on a walkoff sacrifice fly. The Giants started off the bottom of the ninth inning with back-to-back singles off of Felipe Paulino, which then led to Jim Tracy placing Franklin Morales into the game. Morales threw a wild pitch that allowed Aaron Rowand to move to third. Then Mike Fontenot hit a deep and high ball to right field for the game-winning sacrifice fly.
The Giants got to Clayton Mortensen in the first inning. Mortensen stated the game off with a walk and a single, but then got two ground outs right after that. The second one, hit into by Buster Posey, put the first run of the game on the board. They added a second run in the fifth inning on a Freddy Sanchez RBI double. It started with a Jose Lopez throwing error on the first at-bat of the inning and then a sacrifice by Giants starter Madison Bumgarner and a single by Aaron Rowand set up Sanchez for the run-scoring opportunity.
The Rockies tied the game in the seventh inning on a Todd Helton single. Alfredo Amezaga and Carlos Gonzalez started the inning off with back-to-back singles, but it was Madison Bumgarner's throwing error to second base on a Troy Tulowitzki grounder that put the Rockies in business, Helton followed with a hit to left field to score Amezaga and Gonzalez.
The Rockies (18-13) have now lost four of their last five games and are on their first three-game losing streak. They will look avoid the sweep on Sunday afternoon with Jorge De La Rosa on the mound. First pitch is schedule for 2:05 p.m.
