Athletics Vs. Rockies Final Score: Oakland Comes From Behind To Win 10-8 Slugfest

The Oakland Athletics have made themselves right at home in Coors Field. They took the second straight game of their interleague series by out-mashing the Colorado Rockies in a come-from-behind 10-8 win.

The A's scored two quick runs in the top of the first inning on a two-run shot by Seth Smith, a former Rockie. That lead was short-lived, as Todd Helton hit a grand slam in the bottom of the first and Josh Outman added an RBI single to make it 5-2 Colorado. Michael Cuddyer padded the lead with a solo home run in the bottom of the second.

In the top of the fourth, Brandon Inge hit and RBI single and Brandon Moss hit his third home run in two games to bring the A's to within a run, 6-5. Cuddyer answered right back with his second homer of the game to make it 8-5 Rockies.

Jonny Gomes hit a home run to lead off the sixth inning and Collin Cowgill hit an RBI single in the seventh to bring the A's to within a run. The score stood at 8-7 until the ninth inning.

Coco Crisp led off the ninth with a single and was bunted over to second. He stole third and came home on a Cowgill sacrifice fly to tie the game up at 8. Smith doubled and Josh Reddick was intentionally walked to set up the force. The move backfired, as Brandon Inge hit a two-out double to bring both runners home and give the A's the lead. Ryan Cook gave up a single to lead off the bottom of the ninth but induced a double play. Cook then hit Jason Giambi with a pitch before getting Wilin Rosario to fly out to end the game.

The A's will attempt to complete the sweep on Thursday.
