It wasn't five home runs this time, but Colorado Rockies pitcher Alex White fell victim once again the long ball. In the 9-1 loss to the San Francisco Giants, White allowed home runs in back-to-back innings. Brandon Belt sent one over the right center wall in the fourth inning for a two-run shot and Cody Ross sent one out of right field for the 3-0 lead.
White (2-2, 8.46 ERA) ran into more trouble in the sixth inning when pitcher Madison Bumgarner doubled in two runs in the sixth. Cody Ross struck again with a single to score Bumgarner. White allowed six runs in 5-2/3 innings before he was relieved. Aaron Cook pitched the seventh inning and allowed three more runs, two on a home run by Chris Stewart.
The Rockies scored their only run in the fifth inning. Wilin Rosario and Thomas Field started the inning with a walk and a single. Alex White singled them over, which was followed by an Eric Young Jr. out. Dexter Fowler then reached on an error by Pablo Sandoval, allowing Rosario to score. Madison Bumgarner allowed that one run on six hits in seven innings, picking up his 12th win.
The Rockies (70-80, 38-38 home) have Drew Pomeranz on the mound Saturday night.
