SAN FRANCISCO, CA  - Brandon Belt put the Giants ahead for good with a two-run double in the fifth inning and San Francisco went on to take a 7-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies Sunday at AT&T Park.

Buster Posey had a solo homer among his two hits, Hunter Pence had a two-run double and the Giants received an RBI apiece from Andres Torres and Brandon Crawford to capture the rubber match of the three-game set.

Matt Cain (4-2) shook off some early troubles to strike out six over five innings. He walked five and gave up two runs on two hits to earn his fourth win in a row.

The Rockies didn't receive much from the heart of their order, with Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez each going hitless in a combined nine at-bats with three strikeouts apiece.

Michael Cuddyer hit a two-run double and Jordan Pacheco drove in a run for Colorado, which saw Jon Garland (3-6) drop a fourth consecutive start. He was tagged for five runs -- two earned -- on seven hits and four walks over five innings.
