Giants beat Rockies in 9th inning again, 3-2

Monday, May 9, 2011

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ? Mike Fontenot hit a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning to drive in Aaron Rowand and lift San Francisco to a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday, the Giants' second walkoff win in two nights.

Rowand and Freddy Sanchez hit back-to-back singles off Colorado reliever Felipe Paulino (0-3) to begin the rally. After a pitching change, Franklin Morales threw a wild pitch that sailed over the head of catcher Chris Iannetta and advanced both runners. Fontenot then hit a deep fly to right to easily score Rowand.

It's the third straight game the Rockies have lost in walkoff fashion. Colorado also lost to San Francisco on Friday when Sanchez hit an RBI single off Paulino in the ninth.

Closer Brian Wilson (2-1) pitched one scoreless inning.
