Denver, CO (Sports Network) - In his first start in nearly a year, Yusmeiro Petit pitched six solid innings and the San Francisco Giants defeated the Colorado Rockies, 5-3, in the middle test of a three-game set.
Petit (1-0) gave up two runs on six hits and three walks to record his first win since August 27, 2009, when he was a member of the Diamondbacks. Since then, he's played in the Triple-A affiliates for the Mariners and Giants and in the Mexican League.
Hunter Pence launched a massive two-run home run while Pablo Sandoval hit a solo shot for the Giants. Marco Scutaro and Hector Sanchez also drove in a run apiece in the victory.
Charlie Blackmon, Wilin Rosario and DJ LeMahieu each had an RBI for the Rockies, who saw starter Chad Bettis (0-3) surrender four runs on nine hits and a walk over six frames.
