MLB/ROCKIES

DENVER (AP) – Kelby Tomlinson hit a one-out, tiebreaking single in the ninth and the San Francisco Giants rallied to beat the Colorado Rockies 3-2 on Tuesday night. Eduardo Nunez had a solo homer in the third and a game-tying RBI groundout in the eighth. Javier Lopez (1-2) got one out in the eighth to earn the win. Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth for his 31st save. He got Gerardo Parra to hit into a double play to end the game. Buster Posey began the top of the ninth by hitting a grounder to shortstop Daniel Descalso, who overthrew first baseman Parra and allowed Posey to cruise into second. Hunter Pence followed with an infield single off closer Adam Ottavino (0-2), who was then replaced by lefty Boone Logan. After Brandon Crawford struck out, Tomlinson lined an 0-2 fastball into left field to bring home Posey with the decisive run.

BRONCOS, PANTHERS COUNTDOWN TO SEASON OPENER

DENVER (AP) – Cam Newton and Von Miller won’t be watching much film of Super Bowl 50 as they prepare for Thursday night’s NFL kickoff between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos. The Panthers don’t really want to relive the nightmare, and the Broncos don’t want to live in the past. And Newton says besides — “it’s two completely different teams.” That’s not quite accurate, with the Panthers returning 18 of 22 starters. The Broncos have just 13 back. The Broncos put a little bit more stock in the Super Bowl, but they, too, are more focused on the preseason and cutups of what the Panthers run than in that one performance. The Broncos have tried their best to put their Super Bowl triumph behind them. The only diamond-encrusted championship ring around team headquarters is the one in the big trophy case in the lobby, subbing for the Lombardi Trophies that are on display elsewhere in the city this week.
