Matt Cain got an early lead and his teammates held it, helping San Francisco's hard-luck pitcher to his first win of 2008 with a 4-0 victory over the slumping Colorado Rockies last night in San Francisco.

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.

The Giants bounced back from losing a weekend series at home to Cincinnati, earning their fourth shutout. The Rockies were blanked for the third time.

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.
