Rockies win, after losing end of suspended game

AP Sports Writer

DENVER (AP) The new kids got things rolling and the familiar face with the bushy beard brought the win home.

Charlie Blackmon lined a two-out single in the ninth inning off reliever Sergio Romo, helping the Colorado Rockies beat San Francisco 10-9 on Monday and stop the Giants' six-game win streak on a long day at Coors Field.

Earlier in the day, the Giants broke away from a tie and beat Colorado 4-2 in a game that resumed after it was suspended May 22 in the sixth inning because of rain.

In the regularly scheduled game, Rockies reliever LaTroy Hawkins (3-2) blew a save in the top of the ninth. In the bottom half, Mike McKenry led off with a single up the middle off Romo (5-4). McKenry scored from third when Blackmon's hit fell near the right-field line.

All this after the newest members of the team, call-ups Ben Paulsen and Rafael Ynoa, arrived from Triple-A Colorado Springs ready to contribute. Paulsen hit a two-run homer as a pinch hitter and Ynoa had the first three hits of his career.

''The hits were coming from a lot of guys you may not expect it from,'' said Blackmon, an All-Star this season known for his unkempt beard. ''It's really positive to see that kind of contribution from not the usual suspects.''

Hunter Pence hit a three-run homer for the Giants. Pence also came up big hours earlier, when his tiebreaking double in the eighth led the Giants in the resumption.

Hawkins struggled in the ninth, giving up an RBI single to Buster Posey and another to Pablo Sandoval that tied the game.

It set the stage for Blackmon, who collected the Rockies' seventh walk-off hit of the season. He said he was looking for a changeup from Romo since he saw nothing but fastballs in the earlier game.

''The pitch was way down,'' said Blackmon, who was 0 for 5 before his final at bat. ''I looked up and didn't know where it was going to be. Then I realized it wasn't going to be an out - and I ran to first. ''

A bitter loss for the Giants to stomach in the middle of the NL West chase.

''Hard-fought game, tough game,'' manager Bruce Bochy said. ''That's one that you see here in this ballpark.''

Trailing 7-2 in the sixth, the Rockies scored four runs off starter Tim Hudson. They tied the game the next inning on Josh Rutledge's run-scoring single off reliever Jean Machi.

Paulsen gave the Rockies a 9-7 lead with a two-run homer.

Brandon Crawford broke out of a slump with a pair of RBI singles and a run-scoring double. Pence extended his hitting streak to 14 games with his homer in the first.

Hudson gave up six runs and remained winless at Coors Field. Hudson acknowledged the last time he was in town that a victory in this hitter friendly-park remains one of the items on his baseball bucket list.

''This is a crazy place to play sometimes,'' Hudson said. ''Regardless of what the scores are throughout the game you have to keep pushing, you have to keep trying to (put) runs on the board. Because crazy things happen here.''


Giants: OF Michael Morse experienced soreness on his left side in batting practice before the first game. He's considered day to day.

Rockies: LHP Boone Logan (left elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list, ending his season. The 30-year-old Logan was 2-3 with a 6.84 ERA.


Giants: RHP Yusmeiro Petit (4-3, 3.44 ERA) will make his eighth start of the season on Tuesday. He beat the Rockies 4-1 last Thursday.

Rockies: RHP Jordan Lyles is making a second straight start against the Giants. He surrendered one run in six innings during a no-decision last week.


Among the players the Giants are expected to bring up from Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday is Bruce Bochy's son, right-hander Brett Bochy. The team also will transfer INF Marco Scutaro (back) and RHP Matt Cain (elbow) to the 60-day DL.


There were several oddities in the game resumed from May 22 because of the long layoff:

- Susac's single in the eighth will now show up as his first hit in the majors, at least in the chronology of this season's box scores. Until Monday, his first hit was listed as July 30, a few days after he was promoted from Triple-A.

- The Rockies have four players appearing in the final box now on the DL - shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, outfielder Michael Cuddyer, catcher Wilin Rosario and righty Tommy Kahnle.
