DENVER (AP) -- Angel Pagan homered and had four hits to back a solid outing by Madison Bumgarner that sent the San Francisco Giants past the Colorado Rockies 11-6 Saturday night.
Buster Posey and Melky Cabrera also homered as the Giants pounded out a season-high 17 hits and beat Colorado for the fifth time in seven games this season, including four of five at Coors Field. It was the Rockies' 10th loss in their last 12 games.
San Francisco had 16 hits in a 16-4 rout of Colorado on Friday night.
Bumgarner (12-6) allowed one run and five hits in six strong innings. He struck out seven and walked one.
Pagan had three RBIs to help the Giants win consecutive games after a 1-7 skid. They own a half-game lead over second-place Los Angeles in the NL West.
