Antonio Senzatela is showing the major leagues that he can pitch at this level, especially against the San Francisco Giants.

Senzatela pitched seven strong innings of just one-run ball, as the Colorado Rockies defeated the Giants 12-3 at Coors Field.

The rookie allowed just that one run on four hits, while not walking a batter and striking out three and Senzatela raises his record to 3-0 on the season. This was his second win over the Giants in the last six days, as he defeated the Giants on Sunday at AT&T Park.

This was the Rockies fifth win in six meetings over the Giants so far this season, as the surprising Rockies continue to stay near the top of the National League West.

Mark Reynolds hit a home run in the bottom of the first inning, as the Rockies scored three runs against Giants starter Matt Moore.

Charlie Blackmon hit a triple and hit a home run, while Trevor Story added his second home run in as many games.

As for the Giants, their early season slump continues, as they have lost five out of six and are now 6-12 on the season, the worst record in the National League.

Moore pitched just four innings, allowing six runs and nine hits, as his career record at Coors Field falls to 0-2 with a 12.34 earned run average in three appearances.

After learning that ace Madison Bumgarner could be lost from six to eight weeks, due to a shoulder and rib injury, Denard Span was forced to leave the game due to a shoulder injury as he crashed into the center-field walk on a Blackmon drive that ended the bottom of the second inning.

Joe Panik hit a two-run home run in the top of the sixth inning to break up Senzatela’s shutout.
