DENVER — Mike Fiers threw six sharp innings before turning it over to a lights-out bullpen and the Oakland Athletics snapped a six-game skid against the Colorado Rockies with a 3-1 win.  

Next up, a well-earned day off for the Athletics, who have played 16 games in 13 days. They finished the stretch 9-7. 

Fiers  allowed one run and struck out four. The Rockies were 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position against the 35-year-old Fiers. 

It was another hard-luck loss for Rockies ace Germán Márquez (2-6). He hasn't won since Aug. 4.

The Rockies are now 22-26 on the season and will host the Dodgers for a four-game series starting on Thursday night.
