The Rockies and A’s both had reasons to enter Wednesday’s game with confidence. The Rockies had won two in a row, and the A’s had just ended the league’s longest winning streak in history by dominating the Royals 17-2 Saturday, ending a 14-game winning streak that dated back to 2011.

A fast start by the Rockies for the second time in less than a week led to the third straight victory for the Rockies with a 15-12 win over the A’s.

The win was the third straight for the Rockies after an 0-2 start to their season. The Rockies dropped two one-run games and now holds the current longest winning streak in the league at three.

The Rockies got off to a quick start and had a 5-3 lead heading in to the bottom of the second inning.

The Rockies were able to score two runs before A’s pitcher Max Valles struggled with his control and beaned two Rockies to load the bases with two outs. The Rockies got a clutch two-out single that scored two more, and the Rockies had a 9-3 lead.

The A’s outscored the Rockies 9-6 the rest of the way, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the early deficit, and the Rockies won, 15-12.
