Inge had go-ahead double, lifts A's past Rockies

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 Woods 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.
