SAN FRANCISCO — Mike Tauchman had three hits in his first game with San Francisco, Alex Wood struck out nine over six innings and the Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 7-3 on Wednesday night.
Tauchman, acquired from the Yankees on Tuesday, started in center field and went 3 for 4 with a run and an RBI.
A backup in New York’s star-studded outfield, the 30-year-old Tauchman is hoping to establish himself as an everyday player.
Wood held the Rockies hitless through 5 2/3 innings and won his third consecutive start to begin his Giants career.
He allowed two runs, four hits and two walks.
