SAN FRANCISCO — Marco Scutaro and Brandon Belt hit consecutive RBI singles in the eighth inning to help the San Francisco Giants edge the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Wednesday.

The Giants loaded the bases with one out against Matt Belisle (5-7), and Scutaro followed with a tying single into right field. Belt's hit drove in Angel Pagan and gave San Francisco a 4-3 lead.

Guillermo Moscoso (2-2) pitched two scoreless innings for the victory, securing the first winning homestand for the Giants since May 20-26. Santiago Casilla finished for his second save.

Nolan Arenado had two hits and two RBIs for the Rockies, who have lost five of six. Michael Cuddyer added three hits and went 7 for 13 in the series.

Pablo Sandoval and Hunter Pence each drove in a run for San Francisco, which has won three of four.
