Giants lose game to Rockies, Posey and Nunez to injury

Thursday’s series opener against the Colorado Rockies started rough for the San Francisco Giants and it didn’t get much better as the game progressed.

Starter Matt Moore struggled from the very first batter he faced in the thin air of Denver. He allowed five-straight hits and three runs before recording his first out. In the second, the Rockies tacked on another four runs to build a 7-1 lead.

In the top of the seventh of the Giants’ 10-9 loss, Eduardo Nunez (hamstring tightness) was removed from the game after reaching on an infield single. After belting a two-run shot in the same frame,  Buster Posey  (sore ankle) took a seat due to injury as well.

Both players are listed as day-to-day going forward.

The Giants mounted a comeback after they left the game, scoring six runs in the eighth and ninth innings to tie the game. But the Rockies took advantage of Hunter Strickland in the bottom of the ninth, when the reliever failed to record an out before allowing the game-winning single to Raimel Tapia.
