For the second consecutive game, the Colorado Rockies offense showed fight and got key hits but the bullpen couldn’t hold and instead of getting their second ever four-game series win against the San Francisco Giants, would have to settle for the split.
The 9-5 final score may suggest this one was not close, but it was a back-and-forth affair that saw the two teams tied in the seventh before a four-run inning for the Giants put the game away.
San Francisco took an early lead in the first thanks to a one-out triple into that crazy gap in right-center field. He scored on a sac fly from Evan Longoria that featured a fantastic diving catch from Noel Cuevas who had a nice game in both the field and at the plate.
Colorado tied it in the fourth on a Trevor Story double that bounced half-way up the wall in straightaway center field, scoring Nolan Arenado who had singled. Story scored on a single up the middle in yet another professional at-bat from Cuevas who was then narrowly thrown out at home plate after a Pat Valaika double.
