Christian Friedrich allowed three runs -- including a pair of home runs to Hunter Pence -- in 3⅔ innings in the Rockies' 4-0 loss to the Giants in split-squad action on Friday.
Friedrich got through the first inning without any damage but served up a moonshot to Pence in the second to open up the scoring. Two innings later, Friedrich was tagged by Pence again and proceeded to allow another run before departing with two outs in the inning. The 26-year-old left-hander allowed six hits and a walk while striking out two and owns a 7.36 ERA this spring.
Giants starter Madison Bumgarner shut down the Rockies' offense for five innings, allowing only a pair of hits while punching out four. Matt McBride and Paul Janish had the only hits for Colorado, which failed to have a single runner reach base against San Francisco's four relievers.
Rockies prospect Eddie Butler wasn't at his best on Friday, allowing a whole bunch of hard-hit balls in his three innings of work. He struck out one, walked one, hit a batter and surrendered a run on four hits overall.
Colorado fell to 8-10 in Cactus League play with the loss. The rest of the Rockies will be in action tonight at 7:40 p.m. MT against the Seattle Mariners. We'll have a separate game thread for that contest.
