Giants pretty much break Coors Field scoreboard in three innings


The Giants did not get much rest before their game Monday in Colorado started. They will have to play another in a few hours and two more in the next two days.

Still, the Giants batters are not complaining and don’t want this to end.

In the hot and easy-traveling air of Coors Field, San Francisco erupted, scoring 12 runs in three innings and destroying Colorado starter German Marquez — the same pitcher who tossed a one-hitter at Oracle Park in April.

The rout was on immediately, five of the six first Giants batters recording hits; the one out was a Pablo Sandoval sacrifice bunt. Brandon Crawford and Mike Yastrzemski went back-to-back to conclude the scoring of a five-run first.

They took an inning off — zero runs in the second — before they went back to work.

The Giants batted around in the third, highlights including a Yastrzemski two-run double and Buster Posey two-run shot to deep center. Through three innings, Brandon Belt, Posey, Alex Dickerson, Crawford and Yastrzemski each had a pair of hits. Meanwhile, the Rockies had one against Jeff Samardzija.
