Make it three staright wins, 10 in the last 12 games, and 18 in the last 23 for the Colorado Rockies after they defeated the Oakland A's 4-1 on Saturday night at Coors Field.

Nolan Arenado and Pat Valaika each hit a home run and Carlos Gonzalez was 3-4 with three doubles.

The pitching did the rest...again.

Starter Antonio Senzatela went five-and-two-thirds innings, giving up a run on five hits with four walks and six strikeouts.

Jake McGee, newly-acquired Seunghwan Oh, Adam Ottavino and Wade Davis combined to hold the A's scoreless over the final three-and-a-third innings.

The Rockies go for the sweep of the A's on Sunday, July 29. Coverage starts with Rockies Q&A at 12:05 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
