SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Brandon Crawford homered, leading Alex Cobb and the San Francisco Giants past Colorado 7-1 Wednesday for their 10th straight win over the Rockies.
Crawford drove in three runs and scored twice as San Francisco extended its overall winning streak to five. Joey Bart, Brandon Belt, LaMonte Wade Jr. and Joc Pederson also drove in runs for the Giants.
Colorado lost its fourth in a row.
“Obviously, there were several contributions up and down the lineup,” Giants manager Gabe Kapler said. “A definite team win.”
Added Belt: “It can be anybody on any given day. We rely on each other to go out there and win ballgames. So I think that’s what makes us so successful.”
Cobb (2-1) limited Colorado to one run on three hits in 5 1/3 innings and struck out six. He won for the first time since his Giants debut on April 12.
“I thought it was good,” Cobb said. “I could probably pound the zone a little bit better. I got into a lot of counts where I had to make some pitches and fortunately, I was able to, but it’s not a good recipe for success. But I like the way the ball is coming out. I like the shapes that I’m getting and I’ll take the results there.”
San Francisco handed Rockies starter Chad Kuhl (3-1) his first loss of the season, tagging him for five runs in 4 2/3 innings. It was just the second time in six starts that Kuhl allowed more than one run.
Crawford opened the scoring in the fourth with an RBI grounder. Bart singled home a run and Belt had a sacrifice fly to make it 3-0.
The Giants boosted their lead in the fifth on Crawford’s third homer of the season, a two-run drive.
Charlie Blackmon provided the Rockies’ lone run in the the sixth on an RBI grounder.
