SAN FRANCISCO - Michael Cuddyer hit a tiebreaking homer leading off the ninth inning to go with his three-run shot, and the Colorado Rockies rallied from an early six-run deficit to beat the San Francisco Giants 9-8 on Tuesday night. Ryan Johansen Predators Jersey . Cuddyer sent a 3-2 pitch from Sergio Romo into the left-centre seats for his 20th homer of the season, 10th career multihomer game and second this year. He also connected in Colorados five-run fifth to spark the comeback. Hunter Pence produced some impressive slugging himself, hitting a three-run homer in the first, an RBI double in the fourth and a tying, two-run single in the eighth against winner Wilton Lopez (3-4). Pence matched his career high with six RBIs. He also drove in six runs on Aug. 12, 2009, at Florida with Houston. Sergio Romo (4-7) gave up Cuddyers go-ahead homer, though much of the sellout crowd of 41,171 was already long gone by the late innings. The game ended at 11:17 p.m. after 4 hours, 2 minutes. Rex Brothers finished for his 16th save in 18 chances to end the longest nine-inning game of the season for each club. Charlie Blackmon hit a tying double in the sixth after Todd Helton led off with a single against Jose Mijares, then Jean Machi relieved and gave up Ryan Wheelers pinch-hit RBI single. Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa left early as a precaution with left thumb soreness. He was denied a chance to move into a share of the NL lead for wins with Washingtons Jordan Zimmermann, who beat the Mets earlier in the evening at New York. De La Rosas day was done after just two innings for his shortest outing since going 1 2-3 innings on July 31, 2008, at Florida. Next time out, he will try again to match the franchise mark for victories in a season by a left-hander set by teammate Jeff Francis in 2007. Pences 20th home run was a high drive to left that hit the foul pole and ricocheted into the stands. He has six straight 20-homer seasons. Ryan Vogelsong has one win in seven outings since returning Aug. 9 from a broken bone in his pitching hand that sidelined him for 2 1/2 months. He failed to strike out a batter for the third time in 108 career starts — and first time since Sept. 29, 2004, at Philadelphia with the Pirates. De La Rosa, whose 10 victories following a loss by his team lead the majors, was tagged for four runs and four hits. He remains one win from a career high and had his six-start winning streak end with a no-decision. He hasnt lost in seven outings since Aug. 3 at Pittsburgh. It was the Rockies turn to rally a night after losing in 10 innings. D.J. LeMahieu had an RBI single in the fifth for the Rockies to extend his career-best hitting streak to 12 games, and Corey Dickerson also singled in a run that inning ahead of Cuddyers homer. The Rockies left the bases loaded in the second against Vogelsong and hurt their chances with double plays in the first and fourth. Roy Oswalt will start Saturday at Arizona as the Rockies give the 36-year-old righty a chance to earn a job beyond this year. "We think hes a piece going forward," manager Walt Weiss said. "We want to get a good look at Roy down the stretch. We feel good about who he is and his impact on our club in the clubhouse, the way he mentors younger guys." NOTES: Giants manager Bruce Bochy greeted Helton near the batting cage before the game and wished him "good luck" ahead of his expected retirement. "Ive always appreciated how he plays the game," Bochy said. ... San Francisco LHP Jeremy Affeldt, out since July 21 with a strained left groin, is scheduled to be activated from the DL on Wednesday. RHP Chad Gaudin, meanwhile, will likely face hitters once more Thursday in Los Angeles before returning from carpal tunnel syndrome. ... Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez will get another opinion on the sprained joint in his right middle finger when the team goes to Arizona later this week. He said the specialists he has seen already believe he wont need surgery but rather extended rest during the off-season. Gonzalez returned from the DL on Sept. 3 but hasnt had a plate appearance. He said its "very possible" he wont start or hit in another game this season because "it can get worse on any swing." ...

. In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford. WICHITA, Kan. -- Midway through the second half Wichita State guard Ron Baker senses the expected battle for first place in the Missouri Valley Conference was not going to happen. As the fifth-ranked Shockers kept adding to their lead and Indiana State appeared to become more frustrated, the eventual 68-48 blowout seemed inevitable. "When we held them to like four points in the first eight minutes after halftime, I could tell we were putting salt in their wound," Baker said. "It was pretty smooth sailing from there." Indeed, the undefeated Shockers (19-0, 6-0 MVC) cruised behind Bakers 16 points and 15 from Fred VanVleet. Darius Carter and Chadrack Lufile each scored 10 points inside as Wichita State extended school records for winning streak and best start to a season. Dawon Cummings scored 19 points for Indiana State (14-4, 5-1). He was 7 of 14 from the field and the rest of the team was 9 of 37 (24.3 per cent). "I thought we were ready," Indiana State coach Greg Lansing said. "We were loose, maybe too loose. We know theyre good. They could run the table and win a national championship. They are that good. But you have to rise to their level." That didnt happen, mainly due to Wichita States defence. The Sycamores entered the game leading the Missouri Valley at 76.7 points a game, but they were just 8 of 24 from the field in the first half for 22 points. Led by VanVleets nine first-half points, Wichita State led 31-22 at halftime. "We had good defensive intensity in the first half," VanVleet said. "But we wanted to even take it to another level." They did. VanVleet was the key to the start of the second half, driving foor a left-handed layup and another point-blank jumper while being fouled. Nashville Predators Jersey. The three-point play gave Wichita State 36-22 lead with 17:16 to play. Things got worse from there for the Sycamores. They missed their first 10 shots of the second half and committed six turnovers in the process. "Im very disappointed in how we let our missed shots and turnovers affect our defence and everything else," Lansing said. "It was almost like our guys knew they were beat and tried to get it over. If youre a competitor, that cant happen." Wichita State kept adding to its lead all the while. Cleanthony Early scored four straight points, and Carter converted a finger roll before making a running hook that made it 47-24 with 12:32 remaining. Indiana State finally made a shot 15 seconds later -- allowing the sold-out crowd to sit and stop clapping continuously -- when Justin Gant followed a Sycamores miss with a layup. The Shockers lead grew to as many as 28 -- 61-33 -- on a 3 by Baker with 8:47 left. "Thats a good team, a veteran team," Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall said. "To beat them by 20, youve done something." Wichita State outrebounded Indiana State 44-30. The Shockers were 3 of 15 from the 3-point line but 21 of 41 inside it. "To beat the No. 2 team in the league like that, its a statement in itself," Baker said. "But were the kind of team thats going to worry about the next game and getting better anyway." At 19-0, Wichita State tied the 1962-63 Cincinnati team for second-best start for a Missouri Valley team. Both trail Indiana State in 1978-79, which did not lose until the national championship game.
