    _______Jorge De La Rosa 1-2 9.42era vs Pat Misch 0-0 5.32era_______

    Rockies: De La Rosa cruised for three innings in his last start, a loss to the Diamondbacks, but gave up four runs and was gone after 4 2/3 innings. He probably deserved a better fate, but his pitch count rose quickly in the innings in which he experienced trouble. Still, he fanned six and has 15 strikeouts in 14 1/3 innings in his three starts since joining the club in a trade with the Royals.

    Giants: Misch allowed Houston three first-inning runs, including two on a Lance Berkman homer, but recovered to blank the Astros over the next five innings on Wednesday. Demonstrating enviable command, Misch walked none and struck out six, He's still looking for his first Major League victory after appearing in 23 games, including seven starts. Misch appeared twice against Colorado last season, posting no record and a 2.08 ERA.

    Clint Barmes' solo homer in the sixth inning on Sunday gave him an 11-game hitting streak, his best of the season. He is hitting .500 (20-for-40) during the streak, and has multiple hits in seven of the 11 games. ... Rockies starters threw quality starts in each of the three games against the Twins, combining to post a 2.32 ERA, allowing five earned runs in 19 1/3 innings. ... Willy Taveras stole second and third after reaching on an error in the eighth inning, giving him 18 steals on the season and four multisteal games. His seven steals of third lead the league.

    Sunday's victory in the Rockies' rubber match with the Twins gave the club its first series win since taking two of three games in Houston on April 18-20, and its first winning series at home since sweeping the Braves in the first homestand on April 7-9. The win also pulled the Rockies into third place in the National League West, a half-game ahead of San Francisco.

    Righty Kevin Correia (left intercostal strain) threw a bullpen session before Sunday's game and will report to Arizona for another bullpen or two and then pitch in extended Spring Training. Bochy hopes Correia will be able to rejoin the team in Phoenix on May 27. ... Rich Aurilia's home run on Sunday was his 700th career RBI. He also has 1,112 hits as a Giant, 30 behind seventh-place Jim Davenport's 1,142. ... Right-hander Tyler Walker has allowed 11 runs in his last four innings and opponents are hitting .438 against him over that stretch. ... Shortstop Omar Vizquel played in his 2,596 career game, 2,578 as a shortstop, when he entered Sunday's game as a pinch-hitter and remained to play defense.
