Bumgarner wins 13th, Giants blank Rockies

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Madison Bumgarner and two relievers combined on a three-hitter, Brandon Belt homered into McCovey Cove and the San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 7-0 on Tuesday night.
Conor Gillaspie, making a rare start at third base in place of Pablo Sandoval, hit an inside-the-park home run in the seventh while Brandon Crawford added two hits and an RBI for the Giants, who have won two straight following a four-game losing streak.
That's little consolation for the defending World Series champs, who will still miss the postseason a year after claiming their first title in 54 years.
