DENVER — Somebody finally proved that Coors Field didn’t have to be a pitcher’s worst nightmare. Unfortunately for the Rockies, that somebody was wearing green and yellow.

Oakland starter Jarrod Parker delivered one of the finer performances seen at 20th and Blake this year, surrendering just three hits in seven innings as the A’s finished a sweep of the Rockies with an 8-2 win Thursday afternoon.
