Colorado added two more runs in the fifth.

Again, Tulowitzki opened the inning with a double. He advanced to third on a groundout and scored on a grounder by Wigginton after an intentional walk to Smith.

Smith, in turn, scored on a double by Jose Morales.

San Francisco scored their second and final run on as a groundout by Posey brought in Freddy Sanchez in the sixth.

Colorado notched their second four-run inning in the seventh.

Tulowitzki singled, stole second, advanced to third on a throwing error by pitcher Dan Runzler and scored on base hit by Smith.
