CINCINNATI ” The Colorado Rockies are getting that look again. Garrett Atkins and Jeff Baker homered and drove in three runs, Ubaldo Jimenez turned in another terrific start and the Rockies pounded the Cincinnati Reds 11-0 Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.

Chris Iannetta also homered and Scott Podsednik had three hits for the Rockies, who wrapped up their first sweep of a road series this season and their first in Cincinnati since June 15-17, 2001.

Colorado extended its winning streak to five games, matching its season high, and finished with 14 hits in its biggest win of the season. The Rockies are 9-1 since the All-Star break and have compiled at least 11 hits in eight consecutive games, their longest streak since an eight-game run in September 1999.

Colorado won 21 of 22 to get to the World Series last year, but manager Clint Hurdle is hesitant to draw any comparisons to last season.
