Colorado Rockies right-hander Antonio Senzatela is back.

And Tuesday night, he left the San Francisco Giants wishing he were still in Triple-A in the Rockies' 8-1 win over San Francisco at Coors Field.

Senzatela, activated by the club before the game, threw seven scoreless innings, allowing only three hits while striking out four.

The Rockies gave Senzatela early run support. Charlie Blackmon hit a solo home run and Gerardo Parra added an RBI single in the first inning.

The Rockies added on from there. After Trevor Story made it 3-0 with an RBI triple in the third, Nolan Arenado broke the game open with a three-run home run in the fifth.
