Rockies overwhelm the Giants 14-11, to pad their wild-card lead.

DENVER(AP) Jim Tracy didn't recognize his team for the first 14 innings of its key series with San Francisco. Then the Rockies' offense showed up.

Ian Stewart and Todd Helton homered in Colorado's seven-run sixth inning and the Rockies rallied to beat the Giants 14-11 on Saturday night to take a two-game lead in the NL wild-card race.

Dexter Fowler tripled twice and Jorge De La Rosa pitched six innings for Colorado, which scored a combined 11 runs in the sixth and seventh to even the important four-game series with San Francisco at a game apiece.

''I know the type of baseball team we've had since the end of May, and for the first game and a half of the series it wasn't that team,'' Tracy said. ''The last half of the game it is the team I've been managing.''
