SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Anthony DeSclafani and three relievers combined for eight hits and the San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 4-0 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
DeSclafani (1-0) struck out eight and allowed six hits in six innings. The right-hander pitched with runners on base almost every inning but was always able to get out of trouble by improving his ERA to 0.82.
Brandon Belt hit his first home run of the season and Alex Dickerson added another for the Giants. Evan Longoria had two hits and two RBIs.
Trevor Story and Raimel Tapia each had two hits for Colorado.
The sweep was the Giants’ first over the Rockies since 2017. San Francisco has won four straight series.
DeSclafani struck out Sam Hilliard and Dom Nuñez to base on third at the end of the fourth, then fanned Josh Fuentes and Hilliard with runners on second and third in the sixth inning.
San Francisco starters have lasted at least five innings and given up three or fewer runs in all of their nine games this season. It’s the Giants’ third-longest streak at the start of a season in the modern era.
For the Giants, the Colombian Donovan Solano 1-0.
For the Rockies, the Dominican Tapia 4-2. Venezuelans Yonathan Daza 1-1, Elías Díaz 1-0, and Germán Márquez 2-0.
