DENVER – In his first appearance since returning from Triple-A—and in the first game pitched by someone outside of the five rotational starters the Colorado Rockies began the season with—Antonio Senzatela was magnificent.

The 23-year-old could not have asked for a warmer welcome back to the bigs, dominating the San Francisco Giants over seven innings. He gave up just three hits and did not walk a batter, striking out four.

He was, simply put, Senzational.

Colorado’s offense backed him up with an eight-run outburst, collecting 12 hits along the way and securing the most comfortable victory they’ve seen in a while.

The Rockies got it started in the first beginning with a huge potential sign in Charlie Blackmon launching a solo home run over the wall in center. Not only did it score the all-important first run, it was his first extra-base hit since June 22 and his first homer since June 20.
