Rockies beat Mariners 7-1 for 11th straight win

By  | 

Garrett Atkins and Todd Helton had three hits each and the Colorado Rockies beat the Seattle Mariners 7-1 on Sunday, matching the franchise record with their 11th straight win.

Brad Hawpe doubled twice and Clint Barmes had two hits for Colorado, which has swept three straight series and is 13-4 under interim manager Jim Tracy.

The Rockies won 11 straight from Sept. 16-27, 2007, when they surged to the NL Wild Card. They won 14 of their last 15 that season, including a one-game playoff against San Diego to win the Wild Card.

Colorado then won seven straight playoff games, sweeping Philadelphia in the NL Divisional playoff and Arizona in the NLCS before being swept by Boston in the World Series.
