Does that really count as a comeback?

I mean, really? Down 6-0 would be a death sentence in any other park but at Coors Field, it's no big deal.

Fortunately, there's one team that the Giants have been beating up on recently -- the Rox. 10 times in a row, I believe. 

Brandon Crawford had the big hit -- a bases loaded double. Here's part of Chris Haft's story for mlb.com -- 
They fell behind the Colorado Rockies, 6-0, as starter Matt Cain yielded three home runs. It echoed the six- and five-run deficits the Giants faced after one inning during lopsided defeats Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, in Toronto. Then the pendulum swung inevitably and irrevocably in the other direction, as it often does in baseball.
"Especially here," Giants first baseman Brandon Belt said, referring to Coors Field. "There are a lot of runs to be scored here."
For the rest of the evening, the Giants scored all of them. They amassed five runs in the fourth inning and three more in the sixth to prevail, 8-6, lengthening their winning streak against National League West rival Colorado to 10 games.

Here's the best part -- the Giants have seven guys hitting decently -- Sandoval, Pence, Posey, Belt, Pagan, Scutaro and Crawford. Five of them have at least 20 RBIs; Pagan has 18 and Scutaro has nine.
