MLB: San Francisco 7, Colorado 3

May 26, 2013 at 8:16 PM   |   Comments

SAN FRANCISCO, May 26 (UPI) -- Brandon Belt bashed a two-run double that put San Francisco ahead and Matt Cain overcame wildness to notch a win Sunday in a 7-3 triumph over Colorado.

With the score tied 2-2 in the fifth, Marco Scutaro led off with a single against Rockies starter Jon Garland and one out later Hunter Pence reached when second baseman DJ LeMahieu couldn't handle his pop fly.

That brought up Belt, who sent a 3-2 pitch over the head of center fielder Dexter Fowler for a two-run double.

Belt then scored when Andres Torres followed with another two-bagger, and the Giants went on to claim the rubber match of a three-game set.

Cain (4-2) got the victory despite allowing five walks in five innings. The Giants ace yielded two runs on two hits while striking out six.

Garland (3-6) surrendered five runs (three unearned) on seven hits in a five-inning performance.

Michael Cuddyer drove in two runs for the Rockies.
