German Marquez stayed hot on the mound, throwing seven innings of two-run baseball for his 11th win. He has been a big part of the Rockies' recent success, which has all come against formidable foes. The Rockies are 30-16 in their past 46 games, all of which have come against teams with winning records at the time. That includes going 8-2 in their past 10 games, which have been against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Houston Astros, and Braves, and all on the road.
That recent stretch now has the Rockies eight games over .500 on the road, as most of their team has enjoyed playing away from Coors Field as of late. That includes LeMahieu, who has hit nine of his 11 home runs this season away from home. The red-hot hitter said he has "no explanation" after game for his road success.
Marquez has had similar road success on the mound for Colorado, as he has now won four straight decisions on the road,
The Braves have now dropped a season-high tying four straight games after winning five in a row, as Anibal Sanchez suffered his fourth loss. Johan Camargo drove in both runs with two RBI singles on the night, both of which scored Freddie Freeman. The Braves will be in Pittsburgh to take on the Pirates on Monday night, while the Rockies will return home to take on the lowly San Diego Padres on Tuesday. They enter Monday just a half game behind the first-place Arizona Diamondbacks.
