San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Michael Cuddyer's second home run of the game came in the ninth inning to help the Colorado Rockies take a 9-8 win over the San Francisco Giants in the second of a three-game set.

In the sixth, Colorado went on top as Charlie Blackmon drove in a run with a double, then scored on Ryan Wheeler's pinch-hit RBI single for a 7-6 lead.
