Rockies’ squander big night by C.J. Cron in 6-3 loss to Giants

Slugging first baseman C.J. Cron and lefty starter Kyle Freeland produced as they have for much of the season.

But the Rockies’ duo got precious little help from its supporting cast in a 6-3 loss to the Giants on Tuesday night at Coors Field.

Cron hit a solo home run in the sixth off of Sean Hjelle to finally get the Rockies on the scoreboard and added a two-run double off the center-field wall in the eighth, cutting San Francisco’s lead to 5-3. He also singled in the first inning to finish the night a triple shy of the cycle.
