BOSTON (AP) -- John Lackey struck out a season-high 12 over seven strong innings and Daniel Nava drove in two runs, leading the Boston Red Sox to a 5-3 victory Wednesday and a sweep of the two-game series against the Colorado Rockies.

Shane Victorino had three hits and Dustin Pedroia added two for the Red Sox.

Colorado's Michael Cuddyer extended his hitting streak to 23 games with two solo homers, matching Dante Bichette's club-record set in 1995.

Lackey (5-5) gave up two runs and eight hits without walking a batter. Mixing a fastball and slider most of the time, he had good command, throwing 73 of 98 pitches for strikes.

The Rockies finished a road trip in which they lost seven of nine.

Roy Oswalt (0-2), making his second start since being recalled from Double-A, allowed five runs and nine hits in six innings, striking out five and walking one.
