Luis Matos hit a three-run homer and had a career-high six RBIs to continue his hot streak. Matt Chapman went 4 for 4 and scored three runs, and the San Francisco Giants used 18 hits to rout the Colorado Rockies on Saturday.

The Giants have won three straight for the first time this season. They were the last team in the majors without a win streak of three or more games.

“We’re swinging the bat really well and I think the vibe in the dugout is probably as good as it’s been,” manager Bob Melvin said.

Matos, who drove in five runs Friday night, has RBIs in his last six games and set a franchise record with 17 RBIs in his first six games of the season with a plate appearance.

With Jung Hoo Lee out for the season, the 22-year-old Matos figures to keep seeing playing time in center field. He also took away a potential extra-base hit from Ezequiel Tovar with a leaping grab in the fifth.

Matos was hitting just .218 in 31 games with Triple-A Sacramento before being called up for the second time this season last week. He said he’s proud of having success in the majors. He’s seeing the ball really well and trusting himself more both at the plate and in the field.

“I’m not the one in the stressful situation,” Matos said through interpreter Erwin Higueros of RBI chances. “The pitcher is the one that’s trying to get me out. So I have the upper hand.”

Matos put the Giants ahead with a three-run homer in the first inning, hit an RBI double in his second at-bat to give San Francisco a 6-3 lead, and then knocked in two more runs in the eighth with a bases-loaded single as part of a six-run inning.

“I’m just trying to get on base for him,” Chapman said. “I mean, he’s been doing unbelievable.”
