Giants manager Bruce Bochy moved past former San Francisco skipper Felipe Alou for most victories by a foreign-born manager in major league history with 1,034.

Colorado manager Clint Hurdle was ejected in the first inning for arguing a balk call.
Colorado's Garrett Atkins extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a sixth-inning double.
