DENVER (AP) Cristian Adames hit a two-run double in the ninth inning off veteran Joe Nathan to rally the Colorado Rockies past the San Francisco Giants 6-5 on Wednesday night.

Nolan Arenado homered to start the three-run rally, and Tom Murphy and David Dahl also went deep for the Rockies.

Trailing 5-3, Arenado led off the ninth with his NL-leading 37th home run off Santiago Casilla. After Murphy's one-out single, Jake Osich (1-1) came on and hit pinch-hitter Charlie Blackmon. Nick Hundley's bloop single off Nathan loaded the bases, and Adames lined a double off the wall in right to end it.

Jordan Lyles (4-4) pitched the top of the ninth to get the win.

The Giants hold the first NL wild-card spot by a half game over the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets. They are 17-32 since the All-Star break.
