Colorado Rockies' Daniel Murphy raises his fist as he heads home on his two-run home run against the Seattle Mariners in the eighth inning of a baseball game, Friday, Aug. 7, 2020, in Seattle.

SEATTLE — Daniel Murphy had a key two-run single and later hit a two-run home run, Garrett Hampson and Charlie Blackmon added solo shots, and the Colorado Rockies won for the sixth time in seven games, beating the Seattle Mariners 8-4.

The division-leading Rockies picked up their fifth victory in six games against the AL West.

Murphy's two-run single in the sixth gave Colorado a 4-1 lead and he added the home run in the eighth against Seattle's shaky bullpen.
