SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Corey Dickerson hit a three-run homer, pinch-hitter Justin Morneau delivered a two-run single and the Colorado Rockies rallied for seven runs in the ninth inning Sunday to beat the San Francisco Giants 7-3.

The Giants finished 84-78, a year after winning 88 games in the regular season and going on to take their third World Series title in five seasons.

Colorado's comeback spoiled Matt Cain's outing. He started for the first time in six weeks and pitched two-hit ball for five scoreless innings.

The Giants wound up using 11 pitchers. They took a two-hit shutout into the final inning before the Rockies rallied. Charlie Blackmon also drove in a pair of runs for the Rockies.

Rex Brothers (1-0) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win. George Kontos (4-4) took the loss.
