Giambi's homer gives Rox a walk-off win

DENVER (AP) - Jason Giambi hit a three-run homer to cap a four-run ninth inning, and the Colorado Rockies rallied for a 7-4 victory over the Florida Marlins on Monday night.

The Rockies, who had been 0-55 this season when trailing after eight innings, were down to their last out when Dexter Fowler blooped a double to shallow center off Leo Nunez (1-3). He was
nearly caught between first and second but Greg Dobbs' throw to first base was off line.

Carlos Gonzalez followed with a game-tying double to right. Troy Tulowitzki was walked intentionally and Randy Choate relieved Nunez, who had entered with two outs in the eighth. Giambi followed with a drive into the seats in right field for his 11th home run, setting off a celebration at home plate.
