DENVER (AP) - Charlie Blackmon hit two of Colorado's five homers and Jorge De La Rosa threw five efficient innings, lifting the Rockies to an 8-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night.

Nolan Arenado, Wilin Rosario and Corey Dickerson also homered for the Rockies, who've won four of the last five. It was Blackmon's first multihomer game of his career.

De La Rosa (1-3) rediscovered his rhythm, allowing five hits and one run for his first victory of the season. The hard-throwing lefty tied a career high with 16 wins last season.

Ryan Vogelsong (0-1) never got on track and was pulled after 1 1-3 innings, his shortest start with the Giants. He surrendered five runs and six hits, including three homers.

Blackmon lined solo homers in the second and eighth innings. He's now hitting .411 this season.
