Rockies Hit 3 Homers For 11th Straight Win

By  | 

The Colorado Rockies hit three homers last night as they beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 10-4, sweeping the three-game series.

The Rockies have now won 11 straight, the longest winning streak in the majors this season.

Garrett Atkins, Brad Hawpe and Todd Helton each homered for the Rockies, who trail first-place Arizona in the NL West by two games. They're one game behind San Diego in the wild-card race along with Philadelphia and the New York Mets.

The Rockies and Diamondbacks open a season-ending three-game series at Coors Field today. Should the Rockies sweep, they will either clinch a postseason berth or qualify for a tiebreaking game to determine the division winner or wild-card team.
