Cargo gives Rox walk-off win over Braves

DENVER (AP) - Carlos Gonzalez singled home the winning run off Eric O'Flaherty with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to lift the Colorado Rockies to a 3-2 win over the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night.

O'Flaherty (1-3) retired his first two batters before third baseman Martin Prado let Dexter Fowler's groundball go through his legs for a two-base error. Pinch-hitter Ty Wigginton drew an intentional walk, bringing up Gonzalez, who slapped the first pitch he saw into right field, scoring Fowler from second.

That made a winner out of Huston Street (1-3), who threw a 1-2-3 ninth, which ended with Fowler catching pinch-hitter Brian McCann's drive up against the wall.
