DENVER (AP) - Ryan Spilborghs hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 14th inning, giving the Colorado Rockies a come-from-behind 6-4 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night.

The Giants had taken a 4-1 lead in the top of the 14th on Eugenio Velez's two-run triple and Juan Uribe's groundout.

But Brian Medders walked Dexter Fowler leading off the bottom half. One out later Justin Miller (2-2) relieved and gave up a one-out single to pinch-hitter Chris Iannetta. He then walked Troy Tulowitzki and Adam Eaton to make it 4-2. Merkin Vladez came on and Spilborghs homered into the Rockies' bullpen to give Colorado a four-game lead in the NL Wild-Card race.

Eaton (1-0) worked the final two innings to get the win.
