DENVER (AP) - Nori Aoki scored from third on Joe Panik's bunt down the first base line in the 11th inning, lifting the San Francisco Giants to a 5-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night.

Aoki reached on a leadoff walk from Brooks Brown (0-1) and was sacrificed to second. Angel Pagan followed with a single to center but Drew Stubbs' strong throw forced Aoki to hold up. Panik followed with a well-placed bunt down the line that allowed Aoki to break for the plate, and he slid into the bag just ahead of the throw home.

Jean Machi (1-0) pitched 1 2-3 scoreless innings for the win.
