Brad Hawpe hit the 100th home run of his career, one of four hit by Colorado's surging offense, and Jorge De La Rosa pitched six strong innings to lead the Rockies to an 11-9 win over the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night.
Hawpe's two-run blast off Oakland starter Trevor Cahill in the first marked the ninth time in 10 games the Rockies have hit at least one home run. Colorado has 20 homers overall during that stretch, including solo shots by Ian Stewart, Clint Barmes and Seth Smith against Cahill.
De La Rosa (4-7) gave up two runs and five hits to earn his fourth win in his last five starts after going winless in his first 10 games. The left-hander struck out five and retired 11 of the last 13 batters he faced.
