Desmond connected on a 1-2 cutter from Jeff Samardzija, who gave the Giants a 4-1 lead when he lined a two-run homer to center in the top of the fifth. "You hit it down the line enough up in the air here, it's a homer". Oh they leave their mark, but it's the bloops that turn into singles, the lazy fly balls that turn into doubles, and the gappers that go for three bases that really add up.
With the loss, San Francisco has now lost five straight games and 14 of its last 18 contests.
Samardzija hit a 2-0 fastball for his third career homer and first since May 15, 2013, also against Colorado while with the Chicago Cubs. But he was tagged out on a close play, upheld on a replay review, and the game headed to the bottom of the inning with the score tied. Furthermore, San Francisco is 0-6 in its last six games in Colorado, is 0-7 in its last seven games versus the Rockies, and is 0-4 in Cain's last four starts versus Denver.
The Rockies (44-26) remained atop the National League West. Only pinch-hitter Alexei Amarista went without one. Posey walked in a pinch-hit role, though.

Over the past two weeks, Giants' manager Bruce Bochy has lamented his team's inability to pick up its pitching staff, as it's forced San Francisco's staff to pitch under pressure. Statcast tells us the ball was travelling at 109 miles per hour off Samardzija's bat, and he was the first to realize what he had just done would be leading off a few highlight reels on Major League Baseball recap shows during the next few weeks.
Span said afterward that he did not immediately get a clear view of ball coming out of the catcher's glove and rolling backward past the umpire. Samardzija felt Cederstrom gave up on the pitch too soon, missing out when it caught an inch of the plate. He's a professional and I said what I had to say and he didn't throw me out. "I told him he missed it". He was great all night. "The one pitch I was unhappy with was in a situation where I really needed it". "They ended up putting up a crooked number in that inning".
Samardzija just could not hold his temper anymore by the seventh inning, by which point Colorado had piled on four more runs. He is 17-10 with a 3.52 ERA all-time against Colorado.
The Giants (26-43) have lost four straight games and 13 of their past 17 to fall a season-high 17 games below.500. And 24 hours after surviving a vicious Giants rally that turned a 9-1 lead into a gasping 10-9 walk-off victory, the Rockies scored 10 more Friday in front of 46,632 fans in breezier fashion.
