DENVER, July 4 (UPI) -- Dexter Fowler tripled and Todd Helton drove him in with a sacrifice fly in the 15th inning Sunday and the Colorado Rockies outlasted San Francisco 4-3.
Fowler drilled a pitch from Guillermo Mota (0-3) to the base of the left field wall with none out, and after the Giants intentionally walked the bases loaded, Helton lofted a deep fly to left to drive Fowler home for the Rockies' third victory in their four-game set with San Francisco.
It was one of many chances the Rockies had to win the marathon. In the 13th, they loaded the bases with one out but Brian Wilson struck out Carlos Gonzalez and Helton to end the inning.
In the 14th, Colorado's Seth Smith reached third on Eli Whiteside's throwing error with no outs. But he was thrown out at the plate by Giants left fielder Andres Torres on Miguel Olivo's fly ball.
Randy Flores (2-0) collected the win by tossing a scoreless top of the 15th in the 5-hour, 15-minute game, the longest in Coors Field history.
Torres and Nate Schierholtz homered for the Giants, who lost for the eighth time in nine games.
