Rockies Vs. Giants Final Score: Matt Cain Dominates Colorado In 9-3 Victory

The Colorado Rockies were unable to string together two wins in a row in San Francisco, losing to the Giants, 9-3. The Giants struck early for a 4-0 lead by the end of the third inning and never looked back.

Drew Pomeranz (1-7, 5.04 ERA) failed to follow up his previous four-inning outing with another sterling effort. This time he allowed the first four runs of the game and reached 73 pitches. The big blows came on a two-run Buster Posey home run, a Joaquin Arias sac fly and a Matt Cain RBI single.

Josh Roenicke allowed four more runs after he entered the game in the fifth inning. Hunter Pence doubled in a run in the fifth inning, Angel Pagan triple in two runs and former Rockie Marco Scutaro singled in Pagan, extending the lead to 8-1 in the sixth inning. Rex Brothers allowed the ninth run on a wild pitch in the eighth inning.

Colorado scored its runs on a Josh Rutledge fielder's choice, DJ LeMahieu's first career home run and a Chris Nelson RBI single. Giants starter Matt Cain (11-5, 2.99 ERA) allowed two runs in 7.1 innings and struck out six.

The Rockies (41-70, 20-33 away) conclude this series on Sunday at 2:05 p.m. MT with Alex White facing Barry Zito.
