BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles were looking for another spark Sunday against the Colorado Rockies as they try to make a final playoff push over the remaining six weeks of the regular season.
The Orioles got exactly what they needed from just about everybody in their lineup.
Chris Davis hit his major-league-leading 45th home run and Adam Jones also went deep, leading Baltimore to a 7-2 victory over the Rockies. Baltimore managed 15 hits and every starter, except Nate McLouth, reached base at least once.
With the win, the Orioles took the three-game series and carry some needed momentum heading into a pivotal matchup against division rival and fellow playoff contender Tampa Bay on Monday.
Baltimore's Scott Feldman (3-3), who entered the game with a 7.66 ERA in four starts at Oriole Park, allowed two runs on five hits with three strikeouts and two walks over 6 2/3 innings. He picked up his first victory since July 22.
"Every day you show up to the ball park and try to continue the season into October," Feldman said about the playoff chase. "It's fun to see what the others are doing who we're chasing right now and root against them a little bit. At the same time, as long we take care of our business, we'll be fine."
Davis went 4-for-5, while Brian Roberts picked up two hits and had a couple of key RBIs in the seventh. Jones went 3-for-5 and became just the second Orioles outfielder with three 25-home run seasons, joining Frank Robinson, who did it twice.
"This time of the year, you want to win as many series as you can, especially when you're at home," Davis said. "Every game is important down the stretch. Everybody in this division always seems to play really well toward the end of the season. So, the more wins we can get, the better off we will be."
Colorado starter Jhoulys Chacin (11-7) allowed three runs and tied a season high with nine hits allowed over 5 1/3 innings. He also had five strikeouts and three walks.
"When I get into the game, I was trying to make my pitch," Chacin said. "But the pitch was up, that's why they got a lot of runners on base and scored runs."
Orioles backup second baseman Alexi Casilla got his first RBI since July 6 with a single in the second, providing a 1-0 lead. Jones then added a two-run cushion with a two-out, two run homer to center in the third.
Baltimore had several chances to add to the lead against Chacin, but went just 2-for-9 with runners in scoring position and stranded seven runners against him.
The Rockies, meanwhile, struggled against Feldman, who threw two wild pitches in the sixth but still managed to strand a runner at third by striking out Troy Tulowitzki and getting a pop out from Michael Cuddyer.
"Feldman for six innings handcuffed us with the cutter/curveball mix," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "[He] did a nice job getting through our lineup. He held us down for six innings, for sure."
Rockies first baseman Todd Helton served as the designated hitter for just the second time in his career and doubled in the seventh, eventually scoring on a Charlie Blackman double. A grounder by Yorvit Torrealba later that inning cut the margin to 3-2, ending Feldman's day.
"They did a really good job of adding on." Helton said. "That's what good teams do, just keep adding on, and that's what they did to us today."
Baltimore increased the lead to 5-2 on a two-run single by Roberts in the eighth. Davis put the game away with a two-run shot in the eighth.
