Anderson injured in Rockies’ win over Giants
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Tommy Kahnle and four relievers combined for two-hit ball over six innings after Brett Anderson was injured, leading the Colorado Rockies to a 1-0 victory over Matt Cain and the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.
Troy Tulowitzki had a sacrifice fly in the third inning for Colorado. Kahnle (2-0) allowed one baserunner in two innings. Matt Belisle, Adam Ottavino, Rex Brothers and LaTroy Hawkins pitched an inning apiece to complete the three-hitter with Hawkins finishing for his second save.
Rockies relievers extended their scoreless streak to 9 2-3 innings in this series.
Anderson left the game with a bruised left index finger after allowing a hit in three innings.
Colorado won for just the second time in six road games this season. It’s also just the Rockies’ third win in their last 17 games at San Francisco’s waterfront ballpark.
