DENVER (AP) - Jhoulys Chacin did not allow a hit until there were two outs in the seventh inning and hustled for a crucial RBI to help the Colorado Rockies beat the San Francisco Giants 5-4 Wednesday night.
Vying for the second no-hitter in franchise history and second ever at Coors Field, Chacin (13-7) tied a season high with nine strikeouts. Brandon Crawford's single to center field was the only hit Chacin allowed in seven innings. He also yielded an unearned run.
The crowd of 27,268 gave Chacin a standing ovation after Crawford's hit.
Troy Tulowitzki and Wilin Rosario had two hits each for Colorado, which built a 5-1 lead through six innings.
