The Rockies moved to 8-2 for the second time in franchise history, joining the 2011 team that finished 73-89.
Marquez scattered six hits over 7 1/3 innings and threw 101 pitches.
San Francisco starter and Denver native Kevin Gausman threw 5 1/3 innings and allowed four runs in his first appearance at Coors Field. He struck out seven.
