Posey, Pence, Bumgarner, Romo

The big ugly 6-game losing streak is over thanks to those four guys stepping up in Denver today for a 5-2 vic

It was Romo's first save since June 1, per Henry Schulman's game story for the SF Chronicle. Buster got it starteded in the third with a homer... 

Even though Posey had been the only Giant to drive in a run since Tuesday, the Rockies pitched to him with grave results. With one out in the third he hit a long home run to left to give the their first lead in 25 innings.
Torres and Abreu went single-double to start the fifth inning before the Giants got a break they had not been able to find.
With the infield in, Posey hit a grounder to second baseman D.J. LeMaiheu. LeMaiheu froze Torres at third with a look, but Abreu took off from second anyway as LeMaiheu threw out Posey at first.
Abreu rushed back to second base to beat the throw from Pacheco, but the first baseman threw it into center field. Torres scored and Abreu went to third as disaster turned to opportunity.
Pence, who was 2-for-16 on the trip, followed with the Giants' most cathartic hit in a long spell, a monster drive to right-center field that landed in the Rockies bullpen and gave the Giants a 4-0 lead.
