Rockies Pound Giants, 17-8

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(DENVER) -- Tim Lincecum pitched the shortest game of his career on Wednesday night at Coors Field.  He gave up six runs in 2 1/3 innings, but was still fortunate enough to not suffer the loss.

The Rockies (2-3) went on to pound out 11 more runs after that for a 17-8 win, beating San Francisco (1-4).

"A lot of pitches thrown in 2 1-3," said Lincecum. "Just sloppy baseball for me. Not really executing pitches, missing a lot, and it's going to hurt you, especially in this park."

On top of the 17 runs by Colorado, they also added 22 hits.

"That's a pretty good way to break out offensively," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. "That put a smile on a lot of peoples' faces tonight."

Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was 3 for 5 with four RBI's.

"We made him throw strikes, we didn't chase pitches," said Gonzalez of the team's approach against Lincecum.

Guillermo Mota (0-1) suffered the loss in relief for the Giants.
