DENVER (AP) - Jake Peavy doubled twice and pitched into the sixth inning, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 7-3 on Saturday night to end a seven-game losing streak.

Angel Pagan and Gregor Blanco went deep for the Giants, who had 15 hits.

Nolan Arenado homered for the sixth straight game to set a Rockies franchise record. It matched the longest streak in the majors since Chris Davis did it with Baltimore in 2012.

Peavy (5-6) doubled and scored in a two-run fifth and then had an RBI double in the sixth to give the Giants a 5-1 lead. It was the 12th multi-hit game of his career and the first time he has doubled twice.

Chad Bettis (6-5) gave up four runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings.
