Giants Fall to Rockies in Extras

    The Giants wasted another good performance by Barry Zito Tuesday night, eventually losing to the Rockies 2-1 in 11 innings.  For most of the night, it looked as if Zito would cruise to his seventh victory of the season.  However, since the Giants could only manage a single run of support for the lefty, Colorado was able to rally from behind.  Zito gave up the tying run in the seventh inning on a sacrifice fly. 

    The game remained knotted at one until the top of the 11th, when Clint Barmes ripped a run scoring double to give Colorado the eventual game winner.

    The Rockies will now go for the three game sweep Wednesday night.  Matt Cain, coming off a brilliant one hit performance in his last outing, will take the mound for the Giants.  Wednesday's game wraps up the Giants nine game homestand.
