The San Francisco Giants fired on all cylinders during a long winning streak, but several poor outings from their starting rotation has left them staring at a potential three-game skid.

The Giants (25-20) enjoyed eight straight wins prior to Saturday’s 5-3 loss in Colorado.

It wasn’t a dominant pitcher or a burly slugger who put an end to San Francisco’s eight-game winning streak, but a 5-foot-10 backup shortstop with what Colorado manager Walt Weiss describes as ”sneaky power.” Daniel Descalso homered and drove in three runs and the Rockies took the second game of a rain-soaked doubleheader from the streaking Giants 5-3 Saturday night. ”He’s not a guy that you count on to hit the ball in the seats,” Weiss said, ”but if you make a mistake, he’ll hit it out.” Descalso, who had a run-scoring groundout in the fourth, hit a two-run shot in the sixth off spot starter Yusmeiro Petit (1-1). San Francisco, which won the opener 10-8 behind Brandon Crawford’s three RBIs, was seeking its first nine-game streak since winning 10 in a row in May 2004.
