Rox salvage one game with the Giants

DENVER (AP) - Jorge De La Rosa overcame a shaky start to pitch seven sharp innings and Ty Wigginton tied a career high with four RBIs, including a three-run homer, as the Colorado Rockies beat the San Francisco Giants 10-2 on Wednesday.

De La Rosa (3-0) didn't appear to be bothered by a nagging blister on his middle finger that's plagued him at times this season. He gave up two runs and four hits to help the Rockies salvage the finale of the three-game series against the surging Giants.

Matt Cain (2-1) was far from his best, wrestling with his command as he lasted just 4 2-3 innings, allowing six runs and nine hits. Buster Posey had both RBIs for the Giants, one on a single in the first and another with a grounder in the sixth.
