DENVER (AP) - Brandon Crawford drove in three runs and the San Francisco Giants stretched their winning streak to eight games with a 10-8 win over the skidding Colorado Rockies in the opener of a day-night doubleheader Saturday at rain-soaked Coors Field.

The game, a makeup of an April 26 rainout, was delayed at the start by 2 hours, 15 minutes by heavy showers.

Chris Heston (4-3) picked up the win despite allowing three homers and six earned runs over 5 2-3 innings. He was bailed out by clutch hitting - all 10 of the Giants' runs came with two outs.

Santiago Casilla got the final out for his 12th save. He came in after Sergio Romo gave up an RBI single to Nolan Arenado in the ninth. Casilla allowed Carlos Gonzalez's single and an RBI single to Troy Tulowitzki. That brought up Wilin Rosario, who grounded out to third to end it.
