Jimenez not sharp, Giants beat Rockies 11-8

DENVER (AP) - The San Francisco Giants couldn't beat Ubaldo Jimenez despite tagging him for seven runs. They had no trouble getting to the Colorado Rockies' beleaguered bullpen for an 11-8 win Saturday night that snapped a seven-game skid.

Struggling right-hander Manny Corpas (2-5) was charged with two runs in the seventh after the Rockies rallied from a 7-1 deficit to put Jimenez in line for his 15th win.

Corpas allowed Nate Schierholtz's leadoff triple in and Andres Torres' tying RBI single. Corpas was lifted for Joe Beimel after giving up a single to Freddy Sanchez, and Torres scored on Pablo
Sandoval's sacrifice fly to center to give San Francisco a 9-8 lead.

Aubrey Huff's two-run homer, his 15th, off Matt Flores in the ninth capped the wild night of scoring.
