Freeland pitches 6 solid innings, Rockies beat Giants 5-1


The Rockies rallied for five runs in the bottom of the fifth, three on Desmond's homer. It was a big moment and a big swing from a player who has been much better lately, hitting over.300 in the month of June, but self-admittedly was frustrated at not contributing more to the offense. Then Desmond blasted a three-run homer for a 6-4 lead. The Giants, who lost the first two games of the series 10-9 and 10-8, are the first team to score at least eight runs in each of back-to-back losses since the Rockies in August did so in August 2015. You'd like them to be 1-2-3 innings and no drama, but it happens.

"I pitched six innings, I put the team in a bad situation, but they support me and put us back in the game", said Senzatella, who is tied for the major league lead in wins. NOTES: Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado was charged with his first error of the season when he was unable to come up with C Nick Hundley's grounder in the second.

"It wasn't a really good game for me but we won".

Freeland encountered early trouble, as five different Giants' hitters reached base in the first two frames, but he helped his own cause by picking off shortstop Kelby Tomlinson after Tomlinson walked to lead off the game. With runners on first and second in the sixth, Freeland struck out pinch hitter Brandon Belt to end the inning and his 94-pitch workday.

Greg Holland, who blew his first save of the season Thursday, gave up a one-out triple in the ninth to pinch-hitter Gorkys Hernandez followed by Austin Slater's single. He had converted a franchise-record 23 in a row to start the year.

Span said afterward that he did not immediately get a clear view of ball coming out of the catcher's glove and rolling backward past the umpire.

Scherzer strikes out 10 in Nationals' victory NEW YORK - Max Scherzer struck out 10 over eight masterful innings to reach double digits for the fifth straight start and limited the Mets to four hits, leading the Washington Nationals over New York 7-2 on Friday night.

"Our pitchers have been carrying us all year long and I just want to pick them up", Desmond said. For the first time in seven starts, Freeland did not allow a home run. He had another run-scoring double in the sixth.

Normal, as in 5-1, Rockies over the Giants.

"I don't know if we could have gotten better news because he was in a lot of pain", Bochy said. Statcast tells us the ball was travelling at 109 miles per hour off Samardzija's bat, and he was the first to realize what he had just done would be leading off a few highlight reels on Major League Baseball recap shows during the next few weeks.
