DENVER (AP) - Madison Bumgarner scattered four hits over seven innings, Hunter Pence hit a two-run homer and the San Francisco Giants ended their longest losing streak in three years with a 5-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.
Drew Pomeranz started for the Rockies. His season debut was a rough one, giving up 4 earned runs in 4.1 innings pitched. The second-year player from Ole Miss spent the first part of his season in the minors after a 2-9 rookie season with Colorado.
San Francisco had lost six straight, its longest skid since dropping seven in a row from June 26-July 1, 2010. The World Series champions had dropped seven straight road games.
Bumgarner (8-5) struck out five and walked three, improving to 4-1 with a 2.18 ERA in his last five starts. Sergio Romo pitched a one-hit ninth for his 19th save in 21 chances.
