Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Brandon Belt clubbed a solo home run and knocked
in four overall to lift the San Francisco Giants over the Colorado Rockies,
9-8, in the middle test of a three-game set Tuesday at Coors Field.
Marco Scutaro and Angel Pagan each plated a run, while starter Madison
Bumgarner smacked a three-run homer for the Giants, who have won three of five
and own a 6-game lead over the Dodgers atop the NL West.
George Kontos (2-1) earned the victory after striking out the final two
hitters in the fifth in relief of Bumgarner, who gave up five runs on 11 hits
over 4 1/3 frames.
Carlos Torres (4-2) was tagged with the loss after giving up four runs on four
hits over two innings of relief work.
Tyler Colvin launched a pinch-hit, two-run homer in the ninth, but the Rockies
lost for the sixth time in their last seven games.
