ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Nolan Arenado had three hits to extend his hitting streak to 27 games, matching Colorado’s team record, and the Rockies had their third lopsided victory over Texas in as many nights, 9-2 on Wednesday.
Arenado’s two-run double in the first inning put the Rockies ahead to stay and equaled teammate Michael Cuddyer’s record streak from last season.
Carlos Gonzalez homered for Colorado, which has outscored Texas 29-5 in three games this week. The Rockies won 8-2 and 12-1 at home with a combined 34 hits before the teams shifted to Texas for two games.
Every starter had a hit for the Rockies, who finished with 16 and got 12 of them in 3 2-3 innings off Colby Lewis (2-2).
Jorge De La Rosa (4-3) struck out four and walked three. The lefty gave up two runs over six innings.
