Rockies nip Giants in the ninth

DENVER — Nolan Arenado hit a two-out, two-run double off the wall in the ninth inning, lifting the Colorado Rockies to a 5-4 win over the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night.

It’s the second straight game the Rockies have won in walkoff fashion, with Justin Morneau hitting a two-run homer in the 10th against San Diego on Sunday.

The NL West-leading Giants took a 4-3 lead in the top of the ninth on an RBI double by Tyler Colvin against closer LaTroy Hawkins (2-0).

Arenado hit a 2-2 pitch off closer Sergio Romo (3-1) that glanced off the top of the fence in left and bounced back into the outfield, easily scoring Troy Tulowitzki and then a hustling Carlos Gonzalez with the winning run.

Madison Bumgarner allowed three runs in six innings before being removed for a reliever. That’s the 18th straight road start he’s surrendered three runs or less, which is the longest streak in team history as he surpassed Ed Whitson.

San Francisco took advantage of an overturned call to score three times in the fifth. After a one-out single by Brandon Crawford, Colvin laced a ball to left that appeared to drop right on the line, only to be ruled foul.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy challenged the play and the call was reversed, with Colvin being awarded a double. Gregor Blanco soon followed with a two-out, two-run triple to deep center. Hunter Pence brought in Blanco with a slow roller that Tulowitzki struggled to cleanly field.
