The Atlanta Braves (33-63, 5th NL East) came north to take on the Colorado Rockies (44-51, 3rd NL West) looking for a little better luck than they had against the Cincinnati Reds but things have not worked out that way yet.
Rockies fall to Giants before heading home
The Colorado Rockies (38-46, 3rd NL West) were hoping to capitalize on their 7-3 win Tuesday night but the San Francisco Giants’ (54-33, 1st NL West) Brandon Belt had other plans, and he implemented them early, popping out an RBI triple in the bottom of the first inning. This allowed the SP Johnny Cueto to come out and calmly work his magic, shutting out the Rockies in nine innings.
