The Colorado Rockies got a bad break on Thursday night, when starting pitcher Jon Gray was forced from the contest against the San Francisco Giants due to injury. In the meantime, the Rockies' ace has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, as it was reported by the Denver Post. It was unclear whether he reinjured the toe during this game, and the Rockies did not immediately say whether he'll miss his next start.

Story's home run to left field came off Bumgarner (0-2), who remained winless in three starts despite striking out eight in six innings. Crawford flew back to San Francisco Thursday afternoon, but was left out of the starting lineup after a night of very little sleep.

Gray has been dealing with the toe injury since spring training, and he said he was too sore to run because of the toe after the game. Adam Ottavino got four outs in a row, Mike Dunn got one more and Greg Holland pitched the ninth for his sixth consecutive save this season. In corresponding roster moves, they also recalled pitcher Shane Carle and outfielder Raimel Tapia from the Albuquerque Isotopes. Eduardo Nunez had 14 hits, four runs and three RBI heading into Friday, while Hunter Pence was close with 13 hits, six runs and four RBI.

"We owe ourselves two or three comebacks, because we've lost some tough ones", Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. His first two regular-season starts were below par, and he headed to the DL with a 4.38 ERA and nine strikeouts in 12.1 IP.

"I just have to stay off it and give it some rest", Gray said after the game.

Giants: C Buster Posey is lifting weights and doing some cardio workouts as he recovers from concussion symptoms.

Gray is looking to follow up a solid sophomore season with the Rockies, during which he produced a 4.61 ERA, 5.1 BB/9, 6.6 SO/9 and 3.7 fWAR over 168 1/3 innings in 2016.

It took Trevor Story all of four pitches to hit his first home run last season.
