DENVER — The Colorado Rockies just can’t keep quiet this season, especially after defeating San Francisco, 8-0, on Sunday to claim their first three-game sweep over the Giants at Coors Field since 2002.

Kyle Freeland, a Denver native, gave up six hits in seven innings to lead the Rockies, while also seeing 12 groundouts and three strikeouts.

Outfielder Charlie Blackmon led off with a triple for the second straight game and Gerardo Parra slammed a two-run home run in the fourth.

The loss for the Giants marks the sixth in seven games, making the team’s 6-13 record its worst start since 1983.
