Rockies finally win on the road, beat Giants 7-5 in 10

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Ryan McMahon and C.J. Cron hit back-to-back home runs in the 10th inning, and the Colorado Rockies finally won on the road, beating the San Francisco Giants 7-5 Tuesday night.

Garrett Hampson also went deep for Colorado, and Charlie Blackmon added two hits and two RBIs.

The Rockies lost their first seven away from Coors Field. Still, manager Bud Black’s ballclub avoided joining the 2009 Washington Nationals, the 2006 Kansas City Royals, and the 2003 Detroit Tigers as the only teams in the modern era to drop their first eight road games.

Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford homered for San Francisco. The Giants had won their first four against the Rockies this year before Colorado’s power display over the final two innings.

With Jonathan Daza starting the 10th at second base, McMahon crushed an 0-1 pitch from Gregory Santos (0-2) to center field, his eighth home run this season. Cron followed with his fourth of the year.

Daniel Bard (1-1) retired three batters and got the win despite his second blown save. Carlos Estevez gave up an RBI single to Buster Posey in the 10th but held on for his first save.

Hampson hit a pinch-hit homer off Giants closer to Jake McGee in the top of the ninth to put the Rockies ahead 4-3 before Crawford tied it in the bottom half with a leadoff shot against Bard landed in McCovey Cove.
