The Colorado Rockies keep rolling.

Tuesday night, they erased a 2-1 deficit with a four-run seventh inning en route to a 6-2 win over the San Francisco Giants at Coors Field.

Ryan McMahon's solo home run to center field tied the game 2-2 in the seventh. After the Rockies loaded the bases, Carlos Gonzalez cleared them with a shot to the left-center field wall for a three-run triple and the Rockies were ahead for good, 5-2.

Rockies starter German Marquez was again really good but missed out getting the win. He went six-and-two-thirds innings, giving up two runs on seven hits. He walked two men and struck out 11.

The Rockies move to 76-62, a season-high 14 games above .500, and run their winning streak to four games.

The Rockies have won five straight games over the Giants at Coors Field and 16 of the last 18.
