SAN FRANCISCO -- Tommy Kahnle has been trying to tell anyone who will listen how good Colorados bullpen is, even if the numbers suggest otherwise. The Rockies middle reliever finally has some solid proof to back his claim. On a day the National Leagues top scoring offence was held to one run, the timing was perfect. Kahnle and four relievers combined for two-hit ball over six innings after Brett Anderson was injured, leading Colorado to a 1-0 victory over Matt Cain and the San Francisco Giants on Saturday. "Its definitely special," said Kahnle after the Rockies bullpen lowered its collective ERA by nearly full point to 4.20. "Our bullpens real good, especially coming into that spot where our starter gets taken out by a freak injury. Really its just a big spot by us." Troy Tulowitzki drove in the games only run with a sacrifice fly in the third inning to help lift Colorado to just its second win in six road games this season. Its also just the Rockies third win in their last 17 games at San Franciscos waterfront ballpark. Kahnle (2-0) allowed one baserunner in two innings. Matt Belisle, Adam Ottavino, Rex Brothers and LaTroy Hawkins pitched an inning apiece to complete the three-hitter with Hawkins finishing for his second save. "Usually if its a one-run game here were going the other way on it and probably lose," said Ottavino, who pitched a perfect seventh inning for Colorado. "Today was a good day. Everybody stepped up that needed to and we were able to hold them down and keep them quiet." Anderson left the game with a bruised left index finger after allowing a hit in three innings. He did not require X-rays and is scheduled to be re-evaluated on Sunday. Rockies relievers picked up the slack and extended their scoreless streak to 9 2-3 innings in this series. A day after pitcher Madison Bumgarner hit a grand slam and drove in five runs, the Giants managed only three hits and were shut out for the first time this season. "Their bullpen did a great job," San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. "We pitched good. They just pitched a little better." Cain (0-2) allowed four hits over seven innings with eight strikeouts and three walks. He is winless in his last seven starts at AT&T Park. Charlie Blackmon, the majors leading hitter going in, scored after leading off the third with a walk. Blackmon took second on Brandon Barnes infield single, moved to third as part of a double steal then came home on Tulowitzkis sacrifice fly. "At the time youre not thinking thats the run thats going to win the game, but it was a big one," Colorado manager Walt Weiss said. Tulowitzki went hitless in three at-bats in his return to Colorados lineup after sitting out the series opener with a sore quad. Catcher Wilin Rosario was also back after resting a sore hand on Friday. Even at full strength, the Rockies needed a big lift from their bullpen to pull this one out. Anderson lasted just three innings after bruising the index finger on his left hand apparently while grounding out to end the top of the fourth. Anderson took the mound to begin the bottom of the frame and threw one warmup pitch before a team trainer was summoned from the dugout. "It felt like a firecracker went off in my glove," Anderson said. "I went out there and threw a warmup pitch and it felt like what I envision trying to throw with a foam finger feels like." Anderson eventually walked off the field and was replaced by Kahnle. Pablo Sandoval greeted the Rockies reliever with a double to the gap in left-centre on Kahnles first pitch after centre fielder Blackmon missed on a diving attempt. After Buster Posey walked, Kahnle got Mike Morse to ground into a double play and struck out Hector Sanchez. The Giants couldnt do much else, spoiling Cains strongest outing of the season. San Francisco loaded the bases with two outs in the eighth but Brothers struck out Sandoval on five pitches to end the inning. NOTES: Gonzalez went 0 for 4, ending his 10-game hitting streak. ...

The Grizzlies might have a new coach, but theyre beginning to look like a team that intends to make a return trip to the Western Conference finals. Conley shook off a rough shooting night to hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 1:36 left in overtime, and the Grizzlies held on to beat the Golden State Warriors 88-81 on Wednesday. "New coach, new offence ... we just have to get used to it," said Conley, who finished with 19 points, six rebounds and four assists. "Now weve been able to figure it out." Conley had missed 10 of his 18 shots before sinking a wide-open jumper from beyond the arc to give Memphis an 82-79 lead. After Tayshaun Prince followed with a 21-foot jumper, Golden State centre Andrew Bogut scored on an alley-oop from Andre Iguodala to cut the gap to 84-81. Prince made another jumper and Marc Gasol added two free throws for the Grizzlies, who outscored the Warriors 13-6 in the extra period. Princes two jumpers over the final 56 seconds helped seal Memphis 11th consecutive win against Golden State. Randolph scored 21 points on 9-of-22 shooting and added 12 rebounds, while Gasol had 18 points and 11 rebounds. The win completed a four-game West Coast sweep for Memphis after the Grizzlies had dropped two of three at home. "We had to battle through this whole road trip," first-year Grizzlies coach David Joerger said. "Last game of the road trip and we just made some stops, blocked some shots. It feels good to get rolling and take some momentum home with us." Andrew Bogut had 12 points and 14 rebounds for Golden State, which played without guard Stephen Curry. That forced coach Mark Jackson to shuffle his lineup. Iguodala ran the point in Currys absence, finishing with 14 assists, while Harrison Barnes made his second start of the season. "Obviously, (Curry) is a big-time player and not having him hurt us," Jackson said. "They outplayed us tonight..ddddddddddddWe battled, we defended, we executed and we fell short." Memphis trailed most of the first half and was down 70-66 in the fourth quarter before rallying to force overtime on Gasols two free throws with 2:02 left. Both teams missed chances to win in regulation before the Grizzlies pulled away over the final 2 minutes of overtime to hand the Warriors their first home loss of the season. Golden State, which had won four straight since losing to Memphis by 18 on Nov. 9, fell short in a bid to match its best start since 1991-92. Curry was held out after sustaining a mild concussion from hitting his head on the floor diving for a loose ball during Golden States win at Utah on Monday. The Warriors second-leading scorer, Curry sat on the bench but received a rousing ovation from the crowd when a video tribute of his record-setting 3-point season from a year ago played on the scoreboard. Even without their point guard, the Warriors got off to a quick start. Barnes had 10 points in the first quarter to help Golden State build a 26-16 lead. The Warriors also got a lift when Iguodala split a double-team by Gasol and Conley near the top of the key and dunked. A pair of jumpers from Klay Thompson pushed Golden States lead to 32-20 in the second. Memphis, which shot 35 per cent in the first half, couldnt get closer than seven and trailed by 10 at halftime. The Grizzlies trailed by seven early in the third when Randolph and Conley scored four points apiece as part of a 10-0 run that helped give Memphis a slim lead heading into the fourth. Randolph, who had 23 points and 11 rebounds in the first meeting between the teams, struggled with his shot most of the night but had eight points in the third quarter to keep the Grizzlies close. NOTES: Jackson was unsure whether Curry would play Friday against the Lakers. "Were fortunate, because looking at the video it could have been a lot worse," Jackson said. "Well continue to keep a close eye on him." ... Golden State backup centre Ognjen Kuzmic broke his right pinkie in the first half. ' ' '
