SAN FRANCISCO— Hunter Pence joked with Giants third base coach Tim Flannery before Tuesday night's game that perhaps he was due for a big hit or two.

Or three. Or four.

Problem was, Michael Cuddyer had two of his own — and they both cleared the fence as the Colorado Rockies rallied for a 9-8 win against San Francisco.

Pence hit a three-run homer in the first inning, an RBI double in the fourth and a tying, two-run single in the eighth against winner Wilton Lopez (3-4). Then Cuddyer came through with his second home run of the game in the top of the ninth.

"Yesterday I felt great and didn't get any hits," Pence said. "I felt terrible before the game and told Flannery maybe I'm due for some hits. It worked out."
