SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants unsuccessfully challenged an umpire's decision in the eighth inning of their 4-1 victory over the Rockies in which Hunter Pence was thrown out at home plate.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy believed that Colorado catcher Jackson Williams didn't get the tag down on Pence in time after receiving a throw from third baseman Nolan Arenado, who leaped to spear Matt Duffy's sharp grounder.

Video review of the play confirmed that Williams tagged out Pence in time, and there was no illegal blocking of the plate.
