Hunter Pence pushes Giants past Rockies in resumed game

DENVER -- Hunter Pence hit a tiebreaking double in the eighth and, more than three months after he homered in the early innings, led the San Francisco Giants over the Colorado Rockies 4-2 on Monday in a game resumed after being suspended May 22 because of rain.

The game restarted tied at 2 with two outs in the bottom of the sixth and a runner on first. Jeremy Affeldt struck out pinch hitter Josh Rutledge to end the inning.

Affeldt (4-2) earned the win with 1 1/3 hitless innings. Before Affeldt took over, David Huff was the pitcher of record for the Giants -- he was traded to the New York Yankees on June 11.

Pence, who homered in the fourth inning May 22, doubled home Andrew Susac. Pinch hitter Travis Ishikawa added an RBI single.

Santiago Casilla -- on the disabled list when this game initially began -- got his 14th save in 18 chances.

Christian Friedrich (0-4) took the loss.

Righty Tim Hudson will pitch in the game scheduled for Monday. Hudson was the starter May 22, going three innings before exiting because of the lengthy weather delay. The Rockies will throw lefty Franklin Morales.

There were several oddities in this game because of the long layoff.

Susac's single in the eighth will now show up as his first hit in the majors, at least in the chronology of this season's box scores. Until Monday, his first hit was listed as July 30, a few days after he was promoted from Triple-A.

Tyler Colvin and Brandon Hicks, who both started that game in May for the Giants, were later designated for assignment.

The Rockies have four players appearing in the final box now on the DL -- shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, outfielder Michael Cuddyer, catcher Wilin Rosario and righty Tommy Kahnle.

On May 22, a run scored when Rosario grounded into a double play in the fifth, making it 5-all. An inning later, the umpires suspended the game after a second rain delay.
