Charlie Blackmon hit a three-run, walk-off homer, and the Colorado Rockies scored six runs in the seventh inning to beat the San Francisco Giants 8-6 in the nightcap of a doubleheader on Tuesday in Denver.

C.J. Cron had two hits, including a homer, for Colorado in the second game, and Trevor Story and Ryan McMahon added two hits each.

Wilmer Flores homered among his two hits, Brandon Belt also went deep, and Steven Duggar had two hits each for the Giants, who won the opener 12-4. Belt had two homers and drove in seven runs on the day.

The Rockies trailed 6-2 entering the seventh in the second game before putting together a winning rally. Alan Trejo reached on a one-out single, and Garrett Hampson singled with two outs. Story drove them both in with a double, and McMahon’s RBI single cut the deficit to one run.

Camilo Doval (0-1) relieved Jake McGee and gave up a bloop single to Cron to put runners at the corners. Blackmon then drove a full-count pitch into the seats in right field to win it. It was his second homer of the season.
