Angel Pagan hit a two-run walk-off inside-the-park home run as the San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 6-5 in 10 innings.

The Rockies moved in front thanks to Troy Tulowitzki's solo shot in the top of the 10th, but Pagan ensured the Giants walked off on an inside-the-park homer for the first time since 1931 by launching one deep to left which bounced off the wall and into space, also scoring Brandon Crawford.

Mike Minor pitched 7 1/3 scoreless innings and cracked his first career home run to provide more than enough offence in the Atlanta Braves' 6-0 win over the New York Mets.

Freddie Freeman drove in two on a pair of hits for the Braves, who had earlier claimed a 7-5 10-inning win in a match which had been suspended at the start of the ninth the previous night because of rain.
