DENVER (AP) - Jonathan Sanchez limited Colorado to three hits over six innings and the surging San Francisco Giants beat the Rockies 10-0 on Tuesday night.
After five straight no-decisions, Sanchez (8-6) won for the first time since July 5 and equaled his 2009 victory total. Sanchez struck out seven straight batters at one point and finished with nine strikeouts before leaving after a leadoff walk in the seventh.
The Giants, who have won four straight games and 21 of their past 26, had a four-run first inning against Aaron Cook (4-8), who lasted three innings and allowed eight hits and five runs. In his past three starts, Cook is 0-3 with a 13.97 ERA.
