DENVER, July 3 (UPI) -- Aubrey Huff hit a tie-breaking sacrifice fly and a two-run homer Saturday, sending San Francisco past Colorado 11-8 to break a seven-game losing streak.

Andres Torres stroked an RBI single in the seventh inning to pull the Giants into an 8-8 tie and later came in to score on Huff's sacrifice fly off Manuel Corpas (2-5).

Huff then added a pair of insurance runs in the ninth with a long homer to right, helping the Giants get their first win since June 25.

Travis Ishikawa socked a third-inning grand slam and Pablo Sandoval knocked in a pair of runs for San Francisco.

Denny Bautista (2-0) got the win despite allowing the go-ahead run as Colorado scored four times in the sixth to erase a 7-4 deficit.

Rockies starter Ubaldo Jimenez failed in his bid to win his 15th game. He was pounded for seven runs on five hits over six innings.
