It was back in early June when the Giants last faced off against the Rockies. The Giants were able to sweep the Rockies in a three-game series at home. One notable game during the series was when the Giants won 6-4 thanks to a late three-run rally in the 9th inning. This led to Manager Bud Black making the decision to remove Pierce Johnson as the team's closer.
