• Summary: Righty Aaron Cook tossed a five-hitter for his first complete game and Matt Holliday had 3 RBIs as the Rockies ripped the Giants for their fourth-straight win.
• Turning point: Trailing 1-0, Colorado took charge with a four-run outburst in the third, capped by a one-run double by Todd Helton followed by a sacrifice fly from Brad Hawpe.
• Hero: Cook (4-1) yielded only one run and walked four while striking out two.
• Tempers ignite: Both benches cleared briefly in the eighth inning when Giants pitcher Steve Kline plunked Yorvit Torreabla in the back. No blows were thrown as umpires and teammates intervened and kept the two players apart.
• Bonds watch: Barry's slump continued as he went 0-4 with four groundouts for his fifth straight hitless game. He has gone 41 at-bats and 61 plate appearances without a homer.
• Quotable: "We need some vinegar in our swagger. ... We lost a tough one yesterday but today it was like we didn't show up." -- Kline.-- ESPN.com news services
