Giants sock three homers, outlast Rockies

Mike Yastrzemski hit a go-ahead home run in the ninth inning, Curt Casali went deep twice and the San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 7-6 on Monday night in Denver.

Casali finished 3-for-4 with three runs and four RBIs.

San Francisco’s Thairo Estrada and Darin Ruf had two hits each, John Brebbia (1-0) pitched a shutout inning for the win, and Camilo Doval earned his sixth save with a scoreless ninth. The Giants have won 11 straight against the Rockies dating back to last August.

Ryan McMahon homered among his two hits while C.J. Cron, Yonathan Daza and Randal Grichuk had two hits each for Colorado.

Rockies starter Antonio Senzatela left after two scoreless innings due to a lower back strain.

The game was tied with two outs in the ninth when Yastrzemski hit his third of the season into the second deck off Daniel Bard (1-2).

Colorado took the lead in the first inning on Brendan Rodgers’ RBI single off San Francisco starter Alex Wood, but the Giants tied it up in the third when Casali hit a solo homer off Ty Blach.
