Watch out, my friend. The Colorado Rockies found that out Friday night at AT&T Park. Trailing 3-2, Bumgarner (2-0) highlighted a five-run, fourth-inning rally with his first career grand slam in a 6-5 win.

 

It marked the first grand slam by a Giants pitcher since Shawn Estes did it on May 24, 2000. With his five-RBI night, Bumgarner has driven in more runs than San Francisco regulars Pablo Sandoval (four) and Hunter Pence (three) have all season.

 

Losing pitcher Jorge De La Rosa (0-2) served up Bumgarner's gopher ball.

 

Pitching-wise, Bumgarner went six innings, he gave up four earned runs on nine hits with seven strikeouts and two walks.

 

With the win, the Giants (7-4) remain in a first-place tie with the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West.
