SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- Brandon Belt tied the game with an eighth-inning double and won it with another RBI in the 10th Monday, boosting the San Francisco Giants over Colorado 3-2.

The Giants had trailed 2-1 since the third inning before producing a run in the eighth when Belt sent home Angel Pagan with a two-out double into the right field corner.

In the 10th, Pagan (3-for-5) collected a one-out single against Adam Ottavino (1-3) and went to third when Marco Scutaro followed with another hit.

Then, with the outfield drawn in, Belt sent a fly ball to left field that landed behind Carlos Gonzalez, sending home Pagan with the game-winner.

Buster Posey homered and Santiago Casilla (6-2) earned the decision for San Francisco, which took the opener of a three-game series.

Yorvit Torrealba knocked in a run for the Rockies.
