The last time the Rockies won a series at Coors Field was June 1-3 against the Dodgers, after dropping their second straight game to the San Francisco Giants on Saturday night Colorado is now assured of losing their ninth straight home series since. This latest homestand against the Reds, Cardinals and Giants has seen the team win just one of eight games so far, while being outscored 68-39. The Giants have outscored Colorado 27-10 in the two games of the series, including Saturday's 11-6 win.

Offense wasn't the issue on Saturday, Josh Rutledge homered again for the Rockies, his fifth in the last six games and sixth overall, while Eric Young, Carlos Gonzalez, Ramon Hernandez, Matt McBride (making his MLB and Rockies debut after being part of last summer's Ubaldo Jimenez deal,) and Jonathan Herrera all had a pair of hits each.

Instead the Giants scored six runs off of starter Jeff Francis and another four off reliever Edgmer Escalona to do most of their damage.
