 Trevor Brown made the San Francisco roster with his defense. He's proving he can give the Giants some timely offense, too.

Brown hit a pair of two-run homers, Jeff Samardzija tossed eight solid innings to get his first win for San Francisco and the Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 7-2 on Tuesday night.

Hunter Pence also hit a two-run home run to help San Francisco win for the fourth time in the last five games.

Brown, starting at catcher in place of banged-up Buster Posey, hit a two-run homer off starter Tyler Chatwood (1-1) in the sixth and another off reliever Jason Gurka in the eighth.

It was Brown's first multihomer game of his career, and his four RBIs were also a career high. His only other home run this season broke up a no-hit bid in the eighth inning against Chris Hatcher of the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday.

''We all know what we have in Buster, but to have another guy doing what he's doing, we're really excited for him,'' Samardzija said.

Brown is the first Giants player to hit a home run for his first three hits of the season since Kevin Mitchell did it in 1991.

''I was thinking the entire season I might end with three,'' Brown said. ''Knock on wood, I still might. I didn't think my first three hits were going to be home runs. It's been a crazy first couple of games for me.''

Just as impressive was his work behind the plate. He steered Samardzija through some tough middle innings to help him go deep into the game.

He also came up big defensively when he tagged out Carlos Gonzalez trying to score from first in the fifth inning.

''Normally I try to focus on the catching because it's my main job,'' Brown said. ''It's fun to go out and have a good game on both sides.''
