Jason Marquis pitched a two-hitter to become the first 10-game winner in the National League, leading the Colorado Rockies over the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-0 on Tuesday night.

Marquis delivered a two-run single at the plate and outpitched Chad Billingsley in a matchup of potential All-Stars. Brad Hawpe homered for the resurgent Rockies, who set a franchise record for wins in a month with 21.

Marquis (10-5) tied Kevin Slowey, Zack Greinke, Roy Halladay and Tim Wakefield for the major league lead in wins, facing one batter more than the minimum and throwing just 86 pitches in his third career shutout.

The complete game was his sixth in 214 career starts and second this season.
