Rockies 7, Giants 4

By  | 

Chris Iannetta's two-run triple highlighted a seven-run third inning and Colorado went on to beat San Francisco 7-4 yesterday.

The Rockies did most of their damage against Giants starter Matt Cain who gave up six runs and five hits in the inning. Cain lasted just 2-and-two-thirds innings for the shortest start of his career and fell to 7-and-14.

Jeff Francis worked 5-and-two-thirds innings to earn the win and improve to 15-and-6.

The Rockies have now won seven of their last ten games as they try to keep their playoff chances alive. Colorado started the day five games back in both the National League West and wildcard races.
