SAN FRANCISCO — The Rockies took down the San Francisco Giants, 4-3, in a wet game in the Bay Area on Sunday to take three of four games in the series and give them the best record in the National League.
Nolan Arenado drove in two runs in the first with a double to give Rockies starter Antonio Senzatela a 3-0 lead, which he promptly gave up in a three-run first.
The rookie refocused and went seven strong innings before turning over a 4-3 lead to the bullpen. Mike Dunn and Adam Ottavino took care of the eighth, and Greg Holland delivered a perfect-five pitch save in the ninth to close out the win.
Holland has yet to give up a run and has allowed only two hits, converting all seven of his save opportunities this season.
At 9-5, the Rockies have the best record in the National League and are off to the fourth-best start in baseball despite starting with six key players on the disabled list.
Sunday ended a streak of 14 games in as many days.
Kyle Freeland gets the start on Tuesday for the first of two games with the Dodgers in Los Angeles. The Rockies return home on Friday to face the Giants in the first of a seven-game homestand that will also include the Nationals.
