Raimel Tapia had two doubles and drove in three runs to back a solid outing from German Marquez, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Washington Nationals 9-5 on Wednesday.

Charlie Blackmon homered and Trevor Story extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a double and a triple. Nolan Arenado had three RBIs, David Dahl had three hits and Wade Davis picked up his third save. The Rockies have won eight of their last 10.

Juan Soto homered for the Nationals, who have yet to win more than two games in a row this season.

Daniel Murphy returned to the Rockies’ lineup after missing 20 games with a fractured left index finger suffered on March 29. The former National singled in his first at-bat and then drew a walk and scored on Tapia’s three-run double in Colorado’s four-run third inning.

Marquez (3-1) pitched in pain in his previous start because of an infected tooth. He had it pulled after the loss to Philadelphia on Friday and battled through seven innings Wednesday.

The three runs he allowed came with two outs. Jake Noll’s first major league hit was an RBI double in the second inning, and Soto hit a two-run homer following Victor Robles’ two-out single in the third to make it 3-0.

The Rockies scored the next nine runs off Anibal Sanchez (0-3) and Washington’s bullpen. Blackmon led off the fourth with his third homer to make it 5-3 and Arenado had an RBI single.

Colorado tacked on three more in the eighth against Trevor Rosenthal, who allowed run-scoring singles to Arenado and Dahl and threw a wild pitch. The outing actually lowered Rosenthal’s ERA from 40.50 to 36.00.

Matt Adams’ two-run single in the ninth was hit third hit of the game.

TOOTH AND NAILED

Murphy nearly ended up back on the injured list when he stepped out of the dugout to take the field in the sixth inning. Murphy walked into the path of the Coors Field tooth trot race, but disaster was avoided when the oversized tooth veered out of the way.
