Austin Slater and LaMonte Wade Jr. had two hits each, and the San Francisco Giants came back from down 4-0 to beat the Colorado Rockies 5-4 in Denver on Wednesday night.

Taylor Rogers (2-2) pitched an inning of relief and Camilo Doval earned his 15th save for the Giants, who have won 10 straight against Colorado.

Nolan Jones homered among his two hits and Ezequiel Tovar also had two hits for the Rockies.

Colorado jumped ahead in the second inning against San Francisco starter Logan Webb. Mike Moustakas led off with a walk and Harold Castro and Tovar hit consecutive one-out singles to drive in Moustakas.

Austin Wynns hit a sharp single to left to load the bases and Charlie Blackmon followed with a double to right-center field to drive in two more.

Rockies starter Connor Seabold cruised through five hitless innings before Wade singled with one out in the sixth. Seabold then got Thairo Estrada on a fly ball to the wall in left and Joc Pederson lined out to first to end the inning.

Jones led off the bottom of the sixth with a home run to the second deck in right-center field, his second of the season, to make it 4-0.

Seabold began to falter in the seventh inning. He walked Michael Conforto and gave up a single to Mitch Haniger, ending his night.

Brent Suter came on and gave up an RBI single to Slater, another single that loaded the bases and a two-run single to Casey Schmitt.

Justin Lawrence relieved Suter and got the next three batters to keep Colorado in the lead.

Seabold allowed two runs on two hits, walked two and struck out four in six-plus innings while Webb gave up four runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings. Webb walked two and struck out three.

San Francisco went ahead in the eighth off Lawrence (2-3), however. Pederson walked, Haniger was hit by a pitch one out later and Slater singled to left to tie it and put runners on the corners.

Patrick Bailey pinch-hit and put down a safety-squeeze bunt to drive in Haniger with the go-ahead run.
