DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies overcame a nine-run deficit, matching the biggest rally in team history and stunning the Atlanta Braves 12-10 Thursday on Troy Tulowitzki's go-ahead single in the eighth inning.
Down 10-1 in the third inning, the Rockies chipped away against the NL East leader before taking the lead with four runs in the eighth.
Carlos Gonzalez hit a tying, two-run single with two outs, and Tulowitzki and Todd Helton followed with RBI singles.
Colorado also came back from nine runs down to beat Florida 18-17 on July 4, 2008. The NL record for the biggest comeback is 11 runs, and the major league mark is 12.
