DENVER (AP) - Brandon Inge hit a go-ahead two-run double during a three-run ninth inning, and the Oakland Athletics rallied to beat the Colorado Rockies 10-8 Wednesday night.
Todd Helton hit a grand slam and Michael Cuddyer had two homers
for the Rockies, who lost their season-high seventh straight.
Down 8-7 heading into the ninth, Coco Crisp singled off Rockies
closer Rafael Betancourt (1-2) leading off. Jemile Weeks sacrificed
Crisp to second, and Crisp stole third before scoring the tying run on Collin Cowgill's sacrifice fly.
Seth Smith, a former Rockies player who homered earlier in the game, hit a two-out double. Josh Reddick, hitting for reliever Jerry Blevins (1-0), was walked intentionally and Inge followed by lashing a double down the left field line to leave the Rockies winless in eight interleague games this season.
