Starting pitcher Juan Nicasio labors for two innings and puts the Rockies in a hole they dig out of in the eighth. The Rockies have won a season-high five straight games.

SAN FRANCISCO — Justin Morneau came to the plate in the eighth inning with one thought in mind: Just see the ball and hit it.

Morneau hit a two-run double against left-hander Javier Lopez as the Rockies beat the Giants 8-7 Sunday to complete a three-game sweep with another comeback.

"(Lopez) throws from a tough angle, and the hardest thing with him is picking up the ball," Morneau said. "Fortunately it was in a good spot and it was another good win for us."

Morneau's pinch-hit highlighted a four-run rally for Colorado, which scored the winners in the ninth inning of the series' first two games.

"It was a great three games here," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "We kept it together and came up with big-time clutch hits."

Troy Tulowitzki homered for the Rockies, who extended their season-high winning streak to five games. "I've been here when (the Giants) came back against us plenty of times," Tulowitzki said. "It's nice to be on this side and celebrating a terrific series."
