Rockies Lose Early Lead, Fall To Giants 4-3

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Carlos Gonzalez could have let the ball drop and watched Hunter Pence end the game with a hit.

Charlie Blackmon had a two-run double in the second inning for his first career 200-hit season, but Colorado couldn’t hold its early lead and lost 4-3 to the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night.

Pence hit a game-ending sacrifice fly with Colorado playing a five-man infield, and Gonzalez made an outstanding diving catch.

Pablo Sandoval singled leading off the ninth against Chris Rusin (5-1), and Orlando Calixte entered to pinch run.

Buster Posey hit a one-out double in the eighth off Pat Neshek before second baseman LeMahieu made a beautiful, diving stop of Brandon Crawford’s hard grounder and a tough throw to first for the out.
