Recap: San Francisco vs. Colorado

San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Buster Posey belted a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning to catapult the San Francisco Giants to a 4-2 win over the Colorado Rockies.

Tim Hudson followed Madison Bumgarner's gem by throwing eight solid innings for the Giants, but Santiago Casilla (2-3) gave up Justin Morneau's tying RBI double in the ninth.

In the bottom portion, Angel Pagan singled to left off Juan Nicasio (5-6). Hunter Pence struck out swinging on a high pitch for the second out, but Posey homered to left field on an 0-1 pitch to send the Giants to victory. It was Posey's fifth homer in his last seven games.

"He gave us the hit that we really needed tonight. That would have been a tough one to lose," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.

It was also the 1,600th win in the career for Bochy, who passed Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda for sole possession of 19th place on the all-time list.

Hudson fanned eight and gave up four hits, including a fifth-inning homer to Corey Dickerson. The splash into McCovey Cove happened to be Colorado's first hit of the night.

Franklin Morales surrendered seven hits and a run over six innings for the Rockies, who lost 3-0 Tuesday when Bumgarner took a perfect game into the eighth inning until Morneau doubled.

"It felt like Frankie bent a little bit and pitched out of trouble," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "He did a great job."

Matt Duffy doubled and Joe Panik singled in the fourth. Gregor Blanco then put down a perfectly-executed bunt toward first to account for the first run.

Dickerson homered to right, his 20th of the year, leading off the following inning. It was the 100th splash home run at AT&T Park

Posey singled to left field off Brooks Brown in the seventh to drive in Pagan, but Casilla suffered his fourth blown save of the year when he hit Drew Stubbs to start the ninth, and Morneau doubled to center. Michael McKenry grounded into a double play to end the frame.
