DENVER (AP) -- Michael Cuddyer homered to extend his hitting streak to 25 games, Jhoulys Chacin pitched eight scoreless innings and the Colorado Rockies beat the slumping San Francisco Giants 4-1 on Friday night.

Wilin Rosario also went deep and Jordan Pacheco had three hits for the Rockies, who moved within three games of Arizona in the NL West.

Cuddyer's streak is the longest in the majors this season and extended his franchise record. He has reached base safely in 44 straight games, also a club record.

Chacin (7-3) made it stand up and earned his fourth straight win with another standout performance.

Buster Posey homered among his three hits for the Giants, who have lost five straight and seven of their last eight.

Giants starter Barry Zito (4-6) allowed four runs and 10 hits while striking out three in 5 1-3 innings.
