Nori Aoki scored the deciding run on a squeeze bunt by Joe Panik in the 11th inning as the Giants survived a Rockies rally in the ninth for a 5-4 win on Saturday night. Justin Maxwell's replay-reviewed two-run homer helped offset solo shots by Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez for Colorado.
Jorge De La Rosa pitched five solid innings and rebounded from his poor 2015 debut in Colorado's 5-4 loss on Saturday. He allowed four hits and two runs with two walks -- back-to-back with two outs in the fifth -- and seven strikeouts in a 90-pitch effort against San Francisco.
