DENVER (AP) — Garrett Hampson and Sam Hilliard homered and newcomer Kevin Pillar delivered a key triple as the Colorado Rockies bounced back from a battering, rallying to beat the San Francisco Giants 9-6.

A day after getting 27 hits in a 23-5 rout at Coors Field, and Alex Dickerson leading the way with three home runs and two doubles, the Giants again started fast.

Mike Yastrzemski homered to help San Francisco score four times on six hits in the first inning.

The Rockies trailed 6-4 going into the seventh.

Pillar, who spent most of last season with the Giants, tripled for a 7-6 lead and Hilliard homered.
