Giants rally to defeat Rockies 8-6

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Jamie Moyer pitched two innings of scoreless ball in his first outing in 18 months and the Colorado Rockies tagged Tim Lincecum for five runs before the San Francisco Giants rallied for an 8-6 victory Wednesday.

The 49-year-old Moyer last pitched July 20, 2010, when he was with Philadelphia. Soon after, he had Tommy John surgery. He struck out one and gave up one hit for the Rockies.

Lincecum was hit hard, giving up seven hits to the 13 batters he faced. In the first inning, he threw 29 pitches and gave up a leadoff homer to Charlie Blackmon and two-run triple to Michael Cuddyer.

Carlos Gonzalez had a two-run single in the second inning for the Rockies.

New Giant Melky Cabrera continued his torrid hitting, raising his spring average to .571 (8 for 14) by going 3 for 3.
