SAN FRANCISCO -- Madison Bumgarner just missed clearing the fences his first time up, hitting a sacrifice fly to the warning track in left field. Tim Williams Jersey . The pitcher left no doubt the second time he faced Colorado Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa. Bumgarner hit a grand slam and drove in a career-high five runs to overcome a shaky outing on the mound, sending the San Francisco Giants to a 6-5 victory Friday night. Bumgarner hit a sacrifice fly off De La Rosa in the third inning, then connected for a towering home run in the fourth. It was Bumgarners third career homer and only the second grand slam by a Giants pitcher since the team relocated from New York to San Francisco in 1958. "They dont really expect a whole lot out of pitchers so we get to go up there with no pressure," Bumgarner said. "Its easier to hit that way, but at the same time its the hardest thing to do in sports." Shawn Estes is the only other San Francisco pitcher to hit a grand slam. He did it against Montreal on May 24, 2000, in an 18-0 blowout of the Expos. Bumgarners homer came with the Giants trailing 3-1, and his five RBIs wound up being the difference in the game. "Thats quite a night," San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. "He wasnt quite as sharp (on the mound) but he found a way to win the game and he did it with his bat. Good for him." Brandon Crawford added two hits and scored twice for the Giants. Carlos Gonzalez homered for Colorado, which played short-handed after injuries sidelined two of its top hitters. "Any time youre facing Bumgarner you know its going to be a tough at-bat," Gonzalez said. "He threw me a 3-2 curveball and theres no way Im sitting on it. I just reacted ... but things changed after that." Bumgarner (2-0) struck out seven and walked two in six erratic innings. He allowed nine hits and appeared headed for a short night until the Giants scored five runs in the fourth. His home run came on a day when both teams were minus key players. Troy Tulowitzkis sore quadriceps kept him out of Colorados starting lineup. He pinch-hit in the ninth and struck out looking against closer Sergio Romo to end the game. The Rockies also were without catcher Wilin Rosario, who hurt his left wrist while sliding during Wednesdays 8-1 win against the Chicago White Sox. San Francisco played with a jumbled lineup as Bochy rested catcher Buster Posey and centre fielder Angel Pagan. There were still plenty of offensive fireworks. Gonzalez hit a two-run shot off Bumgarner in the third to put the Rockies up 3-0. The ball landed in McCovey Cove, the second time Colorados slugger has reached the waters beyond AT&T Park. Bumgarner, a right-handed batter, came a few feet shy of homering off De La Rosa (0-2) in the third and hit a sacrifice fly to drive in Crawford, who led off the inning with a triple. There was no doubt about Bumgarners drive in the fourth. He sent De La Rosas first pitch deep into the left field stands for his first home run since 2012. De La Rosa, Colorados opening day starter, failed to make it out of the fifth for the third consecutive start. He struck out six and walked two. "It looked like his command got away from him," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "He had his A game early, then it got away from him." Bumgarner wasnt sharp either and laboured most of the game. He threw 112 pitches and gave up four runs, ending a streak of 21 consecutive starts in which he allowed three earned runs or fewer. Colorado cut it to 6-5 on Charlie Blackmons pinch-hit single off reliever Santiago Casilla in the eighth but made two baserunning blunders. Blackmon strayed too far off second and was thrown out after Casilla made a nice play to spear Jordan Pachecos fielders choice. Pacheco then got doubled up when San Francisco centre fielder Juan Perez caught DJ LeMahieus flyball and threw to first. Romo struck out the side in the ninth for his third save. The Rockies went up 1-0 in the first when leadoff hitter Brandon Barnes singled and later scored from third while Josh Rutledge was caught trying to steal second. Rutledge started in place of Tulowitzki and went 3 for 4. NOTES: Gonzalez has five career home runs off Bumgarner, the most given up by the San Francisco lefty. ...

Kaepernick plans to repeat his calls as many times as necessary in the huddle during the NFC championship game Sunday to make sure his teammates hear him. Solid communication throuugh the chaos at CenturyLink Field will be paramount for Kaepernick, who had one of his worst performances as a pro in a 29-3 Week 2 loss to the Seahawks. Nick Boyle Jersey. Yet Kaepernick blames poor execution, not noise issues, for two disappointing defeats in Seattle over the past 13 months. The 49ers (14-4) had the second-most delay of game penalties in the NFL during the regular season with eight.
