The Giants evened up the series against the Rockies last night, winning 5-3, with the help of a pair of home runs by Hunter Pence and Pablo Sandoval to in the first inning to help set the ton.
With a man on and two outs in the top of the first, Pence crushed his 16th home run of the year. The monster shot was the longest home run hit in the majors so far this season with an estimated distance of 476 ft. Not to be outdone, Pablo Sandoval would follow up with a home run of his own. His solo shot was his 10th HR of the season and would mark the first time this year that the struggling Giants offense has hit back-to-back shots.
Rockies outfielder, Charlie Blackmon, who was filling in for an injured Dexter Fowler (knee), put Colorado on the board with a double in the bottom of the third as they tried to fight back from a 3-0 deficit. Bay Area native, Troy Tulowitzki, led off the fourth inning with a single and would later be driven home by an RBI single to right field by Wilin Rosa...

The Colorado Rockies held Dexter Fowler out of last night's lineup as the center fielder continues to recover from a knee injury he sustained during Monday night's opener against the San Francisco Giants. Manager Walt Weiss didn't have a definite timeframe for Fowler's return, telling Ian McCue of MLB.com that the center fielder is day to day.
Rafael Betancourt has been bracing for bad news since he walked off the mound Thursday at Citizens Bank Park. Monday’s MRI confirmed the worst a complete tear of his ulnar ligament. He will try platelet rich plasma treatment to see if it helps form scar tissue in the area. It’s rare where surgery can be avoided but the 38-year-old has nothing to lose.
