Ubaldo Jimenez pitched seven strong innings to get his first win in a month and the Colorado Rockies beat the San Francisco Giants 11-1 on Wednesday night.

Todd Helton homered and had three hits, Matt Murton hit his first home run of the year and Yorvit Torrealba homered and drove in two runs for the Rockies.

Jimenez (2-4), who also had two hits, had not won since beating Arizona on April 7. He allowed five hits while striking out six.

Randy Johnson (2-3), in search of his 298th career win, was roughed up for seven runs and eight hits in 5 2-3 innings. He didn't allow a hit in the first three innings before the Rockies got to him.
