PHILADELPHIA — Charlie Blackmon hit a pair of two-run homers, German Marquez tossed six effective innings and the Colorado Rockies beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-2 Tuesday night.

Gerardo Parra also went deep to help the NL leading-Rockies win their major league-best 17th road game.

Marquez (3-2) allowed one run and seven hits, striking out six.

The Phillies are 4-19 since an 11-9 start.

Zach Eflin (0-2) was roughed up by Blackmon and the Rockies. He gave up eight runs and 10 hits in six innings.

Blackmon gave Colorado a 2-0 lead in the third inning when he hit a long homer off the advertising sign on the facing of the second deck in right-center. He connected again in the fourth to make it 7-1. Blackmon has 11 homers and 40 RBIs while batting out of the leadoff spot.

Parra hit a solo shot in the sixth to extend the lead to 8-1.

The Phillies got their first run when Andres Blanco walked with the bases loaded in the third. Odubel Herrera followed with a double-play grounder to end the potential rally.

Andrew Knapp hit a homer in the ninth off Chad Qualls.
