SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — D.J. LeMahieu hit a tiebreaking single in a five-run ninth inning, lifting the Colorado Rockies to a 7-4 win over the San Francisco Giants on Friday night.
The Rockies were listless at the plate for most of the night, trailed 4-2 and had gone five straight innings without a hit before rallying off Giants closer Sergio Romo, who went into the night tied for most saves in the majors.
Troy Tulowitzki opened the ninth with a single off Romo (3-2) but was replaced by pinch-runner Charlie Culberson after injuring his foot reaching first base. After Justin Morneau singled, Romo retired Wilin Rosario on a fly to center field. He then intentionally walked Corey Dickerson to load the bases.
Pinch-hitter Ryan Wheeler hit a two-run single before LeMahieu’s soft single to center drove in Dickerson.
