Giants 15, Rockies 2

DENVER (AP) -- San Francisco rookie Fred Lewis hit for the cycle to power the Giants past the Colorado Rockies 15-to-2.

Four days after being called up from Triple-A Fresno, Lewis became the 22nd player in franchise history to hit for the cycle. He went 5-for-6 and drove in four runs. He also hit a three-run homer for his first major league home run. The Giants rapped out 22 hits.

Matt Cain improved to 2-and-3 with six innings, allowing one run. Rockies starter Taylor Buchholz was hit hard and fell to 1-and-2.

Barry Bonds sat out as the Giants went to their bench to salvage a four-game split. Bonds remained ten home runs shy of Hank Aaron's record 755 after cooling off in Colorado, where he didn't homer once.
