Rockies record pre-humidor-like victory at home

17 runs and 22 hits later, Colorado runs away with a giant win
Looking to bounce back from a poor performance at Arizona in the season opener, Tim Lincecum was tagged for six runs and eight hits in just 2 1/3 innings. He walked two, threw two wild pitches and left trailing 6-zip. Colorado eventually beat the San Francisco Giants 17-8 on Wednesday night in Denver.
It wasn’t a good night for catcher Hector Sanchez and the San Francisco Giants’ battery. Colorado scored 17 runs on 22 hits, the Rockies’ best offensive output since a 22-hit game at Montreal on Aug. 12, 2000.
Carlos Gonzalez tripled twice, drove in four runs and scored three times Wednesday night, leading the Colorado Rockies to a wild 17-8 win over Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants that recalled the pre-humidor days at Coors Field.
Rockies rumpus

The Rockies had eight doubles, three by Michael Cuddyer, who tied his career high, and three triples. ... Buster Posey pinch-hit in the eighth. ... Nate Schierholtz’s other two-homer game was last July 6 vs. San Diego. ... LHP Drew Pomeranz is set to make his first start Sunday after a solid outing for Double-A Tulsa on Tuesday night in which he threw four scoreless innings and worked his way out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam at Corpus Christi.
