Mauricio Dubon went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs, Austin Slater and Darin Ruf had two hits and two runs each, and the host San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 8-5 on Monday night.
Carlos Rodon (4-1) struck out 12 in six strong innings for the Giants, who have won three in a row.
Jose Iglesias and Connor Joe had three hits apiece for Colorado.
San Francisco jumped out to the early lead against Austin Gomber (2-3). Slater led off the bottom of the first inning with a triple to left field and scored on Dubon's sacrifice fly.
The Giants added to the lead in the third inning on Dubon's two-run homer, his second of the season, to make it 3-0.
The Rockies rallied in the fifth. Brendan Rodgers led off with a single and Iglesias singled to put runners on first and second. Joe drew a two-out walk to load the bases and Yonathan Daza laced a single to left to drive in a pair and cut the deficit to 3-2.
The Giants answered in the sixth. Dubon led off with a single and took third on Wilmer Flores' one-out single. Robert Stephenson relieved Gomber and gave up an RBI single to Ruf. A wild pitch and a throwing error brought home another run, and Thairo Estrada's single moved Ruf to third.
That closed the books on Gomber, who allowed five runs on five hits in 5 1/3 innings of work. San Francisco finished the rally when Ruf scored on Joc Pederson's sacrifice fly.
The Giants put it away in the eighth inning. Ruf led off with a single, went to third on a fielder's choice by Brandon Crawford and scored on a sacrifice fly. Crawford moved to second on a walk and then scored on Luis Gonzalez's single.
The Rockies rallied with three runs in the ninth but still absorbed their third defeat in four games.
