ATLANTA — Charlie Blackmon hit a go-ahead, two-run double, Trevor Story followed with a three-run homer during a ninth-inning rally and the Colorado Rockies beat the Atlanta Braves 9-5 on Saturday night for their 10th win in 12 games.

Nolan Arenado hit a second-inning home run for the Rockies.

Atlanta led 5-4 when David Dahl led off the ninth with a double off Minter (0-3) and advanced on a wild pitch. Minter walked Ian Desmond with two outs and a full count and Drew Butera on four pitches, and Blackmon doubled to right for a 6-5. Story fell behind 0-2 in the count, then drove a curveball 429 feet to left, a ball 106 mph off the bat.

Bryan Shaw (2-0) allowed one hit in two innings, sending Atlanta to its fifth straight home loss.

Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz came off the injured list before the game after being sidelined since spring training with a right elbow bone spur. A 2018 All-

Star, Foltynewicz gave up four runs and six hits in six innings, including solo homers to Arenado in the second and Daniel Murphy in the fourth.
Colorado's Jon Gray allowed five runs, eight hits and three walks within 4 2/3 innings.

Freddie Freeman homered in the first, Arenado's home run tied the score and Ender Inciarte's homer put Atlanta ahead 2-1 in the second. Murphy's first home run for the Rockies tied the score 2-2 in the third.

Atlanta took a 5-2 lead in the fifth when Ronald Acuña Jr. hit a two-run single and scored on Nick Markakis' double.

Ryan McMahon hit an RBI single in the seventh off Foltynewicz and scored when Tony Wolters grounded out against Luke Jackson.

Story extended his career-best hitting streak to 15 games. ... Freeman has reached safely in all 26 games. His streak is the second-best in Atlanta history to begin a season, behind J.D. Drew's 27-game streak in 2004. Hall of Famer Eddie Mathews set the franchise mark of 37 in 1961 with the Milwaukee Braves.,

ROAD WARRIORS
