This winning thing is really starting to get fun.
The Colorado Rockies kept rolling with a 3-2 win over the Oakland A's on Sunday at Coors Field.
Right-hander German Marquez went seven-and-two-thirds innings and allowed only two runs on five hits with one walk and eight strikeouts.
After Scott Oberg recorded the final out of the top of the eighth innings, closer Wade Davis worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his 30th save of the season.
Offensively, the Rockies did just enough.
Tom Murphy ripped a two-run home run in the second inning and then Ryan McMahon, fresh off his recall from AAA Albuquerque, scored Trevor Story with a third-inning RBI double.
The Rockies have won 19 of their last 24 games and 16 of their last 20 at Coors Field.
The Rockies are now a season-high 10 games over .500 at 57-47.
They start a three-game series against the Cardinals in St. Louis on Monday, July 30. Coverage starts at 5:30 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
