Parker, Moss lead A's to sweep of Rockies

DENVER (AP) - Jarrod Parker allowed three hits over seven scoreless innings and Brandon Moss drove in three runs, helping the Oakland Athletics beat the slumping Colorado Rockies 8-2 on Thursday for their first series sweep on the road since the end of the 2010 season.

Parker (3-3) was bumped up a spot in the rotation due to Brandon McCarthy's sore shoulder. The righty allowed just three singles before being lifted for a reliever after throwing an efficient 89 pitches. Parker struck out six and walked just one.

Moss has been swinging a hot bat since being brought up from Triple-A Sacramento on June 6. He hit his fifth homer in eight games, a solo shot to right-center in the ninth. He also had a two-run double in the third.
