Span gets RBI single in 14th, lifts Giants over Rockies 4-3

Instant Analysis Five Takeaways From Giants Skid-snapping Win Over Rockies

NOTES: Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu left the game in the fourth inning because of a cramp in his right groin.

Instead, San Francisco's Denard Span donned the mask and cape. In the bottom of the inning, Ian Desmond made a sliding catch to rob Joe Panik of a hit and in the second inning, Brandon Crawford showed incredible awareness jumping to field a high chopper, finding the bag in time to nail the runner, and firing to first to complete the double play.

Cain was pulled after six innings, having yielded three runs and six hits.

Giants center fielder Denard Span spent the better part of Tuesday evening re-positioning himself around the airborne wildlife, and when it came time for Span to make his seventh plate appearance of the evening, he decided he'd seen enough. Posey's throw's were dead on both times, leading to a question as to why the Rockies were attempting to run in the first place.

The Rockies lost to the Giants on Monday night (SF 9, COL 2) and have lost their last six games overall.

Span had three hits and two RBIs, and Hernandez and Brandon Belt each had two hits. Gorkys Hernandez got the rally started on a one out single and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Matt Cain. Bad mistake. Cain's second mistake was hanging a first-pitch, 74 miles per hour curveball that Reynolds drove deep to left field for a three-run homer. The former MVP gunned down two runners in extra innings, negating the Rockies from sparking any sort of rally.

"IT systems in several WPP companies have been affected by a suspected cyber attack ", said WPP on its official Twitter account. In a statement , it said that "in connection with the cyber attack, the Chernobyl nuclear power plant website is not working".

Colorado Rockies' Charlie Blackmon (19) is forced out at third base by San Francisco Giants third baseman Ryder Jones after a ground ball from Nolan A. He will not start the series finale Wednesday, Rockies manager Bud Black announced afterward. But Hoffman delivered 6 ⅔ solid innings. Most important, he pitched with poise, something that had been lacking of late from his fellow rookie starters.

The Giants cut the lead to 3-2 in the sixth on a Buster Posey walk, Brandon Belt single and a sacrifice fly by Brandon Crawford.

San Francisco scratched out a run off Hoffman in the third on a single by Gorkys Hernandez, a ideal sacrifice bunt by Cain and an RBI single by Denard Span. "You never want to lose 14 inning games, it just zaps the energy out of you even more than you already are exhausted". He had not recorded a win against the Rockies since May 26, 2013 and was 0-4 with a 4.47 ERA in his last nine starts against them.

Cain, making his 40th career start against Colorado, entered the game with 1-7 record and a 7.82 ERA in his last 10 starts.

But up until Reynolds' homer, Cain looked like vintage Cain, limiting the Rockies to just five hits with solid command and a moving fastball.
