Rox lose by 1 in series finale at San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Ryan Vogelsong pitched eight fantastic innings and Andres Torres singled home the tiebreaking run, leading the San Francisco Giants over the Colorado Rockies 2-1 Sunday in a series highlighted by dominant pitching.

Freddy Sanchez also drove in a run for the Giants, who won their fourth in five games. Miguel Tejada had two hits.

Chris Iannetta homered for the Rockies, who are 4-12 in their last 16 games and have not won back-to-back games since May 16-17.

Vogelsong (4-1) matched his career high with eight innings, giving up a run on four hits. He walked one and struck out seven. He's allowed one run or less in each of his past six starts.

Brian Wilson worked the ninth for his 17th save in 19 chances.
