An effective outing by Jorge De La Rosa was overshadowed by poor performances by two Rockies relievers that are stil hopeful of making the opening day roster as Colorado lost to the San Francisco Giants 9-2 on Friday afternoon. De La Rosa became the first Rockies starter to go four innings this Spring, giving up just two runs on four hits while striking out three and registering seven of eight outs in play via groundballs. Corpas allowed four more runs in an ineffective fifth inning, and the Giants tacked on three more off of Flores, who couldn't get out of his assigned inning, leaving with the bases loaded and two outs in the seventh. Edgmer Escalona got the final out of that inning and pitched a scoreless eighth, Justin Speier and Matt Reynolds also contributed scoreless innings of relief for the Rockies.
On offense, Ian Stewart collected two hits, but also had one of three Rockies errors of the day in the loss. Jason Giambi made his Cactus League debut and went hitless in one at bat.
