Rockies Sweep Giants

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Clint Barmes homered for the second straight game, pitcher Jorge De La Rosa hit an RBI single and the Colorado Rockies completed a three-game sweep of the San Francisco Giants with a 3-1 victory Thursday night.

De La Rosa (10-8) struck out seven in seven scoreless innings to win his second straight start, retiring the final 11 batters he faced after Bengie Molina's one-out double in the fourth and 17 of his last 19 overall.

De La Rosa gave up three hits and pitched perhaps his best outing of the year in his final 2008 start. He also blanked the Giants over seven innings Sept. 1, striking out six and allowing four hits.
