DENVER (AP) - Carlos Gonzalez hit an early two-run homer and Aaron Cook threw 6 1-3 sharp innings, lifting the Colorado Rockies to a 7-3 victory over the reeling San Francisco Giants on Thursday night.
Dexter Fowler provided a spark on the basepaths, stealing two bases and scoring twice as the Rockies won for the third time in four games.
The Giants' skid reached a season-high six games.
Buster Posey had a solo homer as he took the place of catcher Bengie Molina in the lineup after he was dealt to Texas earlier in the day.
Cook (3-5) allowed three runs and seven hits to win for the first time since May 29.
Madison Bumgarner (0-2) lasted seven innings in his second start of the season, giving up four runs and nine hits.
