De La Rosa’s return takes the sting off defeat

Rockies get their left-handed ace back but lose to the NL West-leading Giants
“It feels good to get back out there and pitch,” Rockies’ pitcher Jorge De La Rosa said after his first start in more than a year. “At the same time, I didn’t get the results I wanted. Everything felt good though, and I can work a lot more. It’s all the same thing, you want to make your pitches, and if you don’t they will hurt you. But things felt normal.”
Switch-hitter Pablo Sandoval sure hurt the Rockies. He homered from both sides of the plate, and the first-place Giants reduced their magic number to clinch the division to four.
Buster Posey connected for the Giants to back another strong start by Barry Zito (13-8) as San Francisco completed a four-game sweep over the Colorado Rockies. Posey – making an MVP bid and drawing chants of “M-V-P!” – hit his 23rd home run.
Rockies rumpus

Pablo Sandoval batted .500 (8-for-16) with seven RBIs and three homers during the series. ... The Rockies cleared room on the 40-man roster for Jorge De La Rosa by transferring LHP Christian Friedrich to the 60-day DL. ... Angel Pagan’s double in the third gave him 56 extra-base hits, most on the Giants. ... The Giants improved to 7-11 in games going for a sweep. ... San Francisco topped its win total of 86 from last year, improving to 13-5 in September.
