With one swing, David Dahl helped give the Colorado Rockies a series win, a winning road trip and also gave himself a spot in the history books.

Dahl's third inning grand slam vaulted the Rockies into the lead and eventually the Rockies prevailed, 6-3, over the San Francisco Giants Wednesday at Oracle Park in San Francisco.

It was the first grand slam ever hit by a Rockies player in San Francisco.

The blast erased a 2-0 deficit. Colorado added single runs in the fourth and seventh innings to provide some breathing room.

Dahl finished the day with a career high five RBIs. Starter German Marquez went five innings and was good enough to pick up the win and run his record to 8-3.

The Rockies take two of three games against the Giants and finish the N.L. West road trip 5-4.
