The Giants jumped on Colorado starter Peter Lambert in the second. Conforto hit the first pitch of the inning over the scoreboard in right field to start the rally. It was his sixth homer of the season.

Nick Ahmed reached on a sacrifice bunt, which scored Yastrzemski, Jung Hoo Lee drove in Ramos with a double and Lamont Wade Jr. followed with the sixth hit of the frame, a two-run single that made it 6-0.

Brenton Doyle got a run back for the Rockies in the second when he tripled and scored on a wild pitch, but San Francisco answered in the third on Yastrzemski’s triple and Sabol’s double.

Lambert (2-2) left after giving up seven runs on nine hits over three innings, and his teammates started to chip away at the deficit against starter Jordan Hicks.

Beck doubled with one out in the fifth and scored on Blackmon’s single. Blackmon eventually scored on Diaz’s swinging bunt to make it 7-3. Blackmon had an RBI single in the sixth after Hicks was pulled. Hicks (3-1) allowed three runs on seven hits and struck out five in five innings.

The Giants got a run back when Conforto scored from second on Ryan McMahon’s throwing error on Chapman’s two-out single in the seventh.

Diaz hit a two-run homer off closer Camilo Doval in the ninth, his third of the season, but Doval got Brendan Rodgers to ground out to end the game.
