DENVER -- Bruce Bochy cant explain why his team is in such an offensive funk.Were looking for that magic wand, the San Francisco manager said. We are looking for someone to get us going.No one stepped up Monday.Chad Bettis held San Francisco in check by throwing a two-hitter for his first career complete game, Carlos Gonzalez hit a grand slam as part of a six-run third and the Colorado Rockies beat the slumping Giants 6-0.Bettis (12-7) was perfect until Eduardo Nunez singled with two outs in the fifth inning. He struck out seven and walked none.Their guy pitched great. Ill give him that, but at the same time weve been in this for a little while, Bochy said. Its time for us to wake up here.The Giants had the best record in baseball at the All-Star break, but things have unraveled. Theyve gone a major league-worst 16-31 since then, lost their lead in the NL West and are now trying to hang on to a wild-card spot.San Francisco intentionally walked Nolan Arenado to face Gonzalez in the third. Gonzalez lined a fastball from Matt Moore over the fence in right-center for his second grand slam of the season.Gonzalez understood the move. Arenado is one of the top run-producers in the league and the player nicknamed Cargo is in a slump.They took their chances. Didnt work, Gonzalez said. Good for us, bad for them.An erratic Moore (2-4 with Giants, 9-11 overall) allowed six runs in 2 2/3 innings -- his shortest outing of the season. He walked four and threw two wild pitches.I have to be a ton better than that, said Moore, who allowed his first career grand slam. I didnt give us a very good chance to win.Moore, who was acquired from Tampa Bay on July 31, had trouble with his release point in the third. He walked the first two batters of the inning, including Bettis when the pitcher tried to put down a bunt. That paved the way to the decisive inning.Two batters after Gonzalezs drive, Nick Hundley hit a solo homer to give the Rockies a 6-0 lead.There is no excuse for that third inning. I had plenty of stuff today, Moore said.Bettis was stellar in the best outing of his career, getting 15 groundball outs. He surrendered a leadoff double to Trevor Brown in the sixth, but worked his way out of the jam.The 27-year-old Bettis called this his best game in terms of feel for his pitches. He fell behind leadoff hitter Denard Span 3-0 to start the game, before getting him to ground, and was in command the rest of the way.He could throw any pitch for a strike at any time, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. That was outstanding by Chad.TRAINERS ROOMGiants: C Buster Posey received a day off after spending 13 innings behind the plate Sunday during a loss in Chicago against the Cubs. Ive got to keep an eye on these guys and keep them fresh, Bochy said.POWER STRUGGLEPart of the problem for the Giants has been a lack of power, with just 36 homers in the second half. Some of their better long ball hitters -- Brandon Crawford, Brandon Belt and Posey -- have gone a combined 243 at bats without leaving the yard.I cant explain it for you, Bochy said. Hopefully, that means well hit a few from this point on.THIS & THATLefty Ty Blach made his major league debut for the Giants in the city where he grew up. He pitched three scoreless innings. ... The Giants have dropped 18 of 25 road games since the All-Star break.UP NEXTGiants: RHP Jeff Samardzija (11-9, 4.06 ERA) is 1-1 with a 2.30 ERA in two starts against Colorado.Rockies: LHP Tyler Anderson (5-5, 3.43 ERA) has allowed three or less runs in 12 of his 15 starts. Doug Wickenheiser Jersey . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. Doug Gilmour Jersey . The Montreal Canadiens announced on Friday that the veteran forward will return to the teams line-up on Saturday night when the Habs visit the Nashville Predators. http://www.authenticbluesshopnhl.com/patrik-berglund-jersey/ . "Jeff is a hard worker who was an important special-teams contributor for us last season," said Stamps GM John Hufnagel. Vince Dunn Jersey . P.A. Parenteau scored early in the third period to help the Avs edge Toronto 2-1 on Tuesday night. Cory Sarich also scored for Colorado (3-0-0), which is off to its best ever start. Joe Mullen Jersey . Inter president Erick Thohir says in a club statement on Wednesday that Vidic is "one of the worlds best defenders and his qualities, international pedigree, and charisma will be an asset. Darius Boyd has been named the Ron McAuliffe Medal winner as Queenslands State of Origin player of the year.And Brisbane great Willie Carne believes Boyd should also receive another honour - the Broncos captaincy.Boyd, 29, was a revelation when he stepped up in the Maroons No.1 jersey for the first time in 2016 in the absence of injured Billy Slater.He received the prestigious medal after Corey Parker was awarded the Maroons honour last year.Carne believes Boyd should also take over from Parker as Brisbane skipper.Boyd has been shortlisted by Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett for the captaincy along with ex-skipper Sam Thaiday and hooker Andrew McCullough following Parkers 2016 retirement.I think he is the perfect fit as captain, Carne told AAP.Broncos captains have always been players who have led by example and that is what Darius does.He might come across as a quietly spoken bloke at the best of times.But he has a heap of experience and gets out there and does it.It would be a good call.Boyd is favourite for the Brisbane captaincy which is set to be unveiled in January by Bennett.It would cap a remarkable turnaround for the once-troubled NRL star.Boyd quit Newcastle in 2014 and was treatedd for depression before being sidelined with a torn achilles on his return to the Broncos in 2015.ddddddddddddNow healthy on and off the field, Boyd has returned to his career-best form of 2010 when he was Dally M fullback of the year and a premiership-winning Clive Churchill Medallist.Boyd, named Brisbanes best and fairest this season, has been shortlisted for the Golden Boot Award as the worlds best rugby league player.Boyd was passed over for the Brisbane captaincy 12 months ago after claiming he wasnt ready.Boyd was also fearful that being named captain would prompt speculation he received preferential treatment from Bennett, the coach under whom he had played his entire career.But Carne said Boyds captaincy claims were now undeniable.He has had an amazing year, Carne said.Sure, Wayne (Bennett) can do whatever he wants as coach and Boyd has played under Wayne his whole career.But I dont think Wayne has ever favoured him over anyone else at his clubs.The fact is, the kid can play.And he has learned a lot in the past year about himself.I think he is ready.
