SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Brandon Crawford delivered the decisive hit for a second straight day, connecting for a three-run homer in the sixth inning as the San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 4-3.

Crawford came through with a bases-loaded, two-run double in the seventh of a 3-1 win in Friday’s home opener.

Ben Bowden relieved Chi Chi González and surrendered consecutive walks to Alex Dickerson and pinch-hitter Wilmer Flores before Crawford’s second homer of the season.
