National League Game Summary - San Francisco at Colorado



(Saturday, June 29th)

Final Score: Colorado 2, San Francisco 1

Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Nolan Arenado's RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning led the Colorado Rockies to a 2-1 win over the San Francisco Giants in the second of three from Coors Field.

With Jeremy Affeldt (1-4) on the mound, Todd Helton drew a two-out walk and was replaced by pinch-runner Josh Rutledge, who promptly stole second. Arenado then punched a 2-2 pitch into center field and Rutledge easily scored for the win.

"I was just trying to look for something that was up because he works well when he gets the ball down low," said Arenado. "I was just looking for something up and he hung one and luckily I got a hold of it."

Michael Cuddyer extended his team-record hitting streak to 26 games with an RBI single in the first inning for the Rockies, who have taken the first two games of this set. He has also reached base safely in a franchise-best 45 consecutive games.

Jorge De La Rosa pitched six solid innings in the start, giving up one run on six hits with a walk and four strikeouts. Rafael Betancourt (2-3) got the win after throwing a 1-2-3 ninth inning.

Buster Posey drove in the only run of the game for the Giants, who have dropped a season-high six straight games. Matt Cain tossed eight strong innings as he gave up just one run on three hits with a walk and five strikeouts.

"We're in a funk right now and we're the only ones who can get ourselves out of it, that's all there is to that," said Cain.

The Rockies got on board in their first at-bat as Corey Dickerson doubled to start the frame, moved to third on DJ LeMahieu's sac bunt and later scored when Cuddyer singled through the middle.

The Giants left a man on third in the first inning and didn't threaten again until they tied the game in the sixth.

With one out, Andres Torres singled, but was then picked off at first. Marco Scutaro followed with an infield single and came all the way home on Posey's double to left.
