Rockies walk-off against Braves 3-2

Posted: Updated:

Tony Wolters drew a bases-loaded walk off Arodys Vizcaino with two outs in the 10th inning, sending the Colorado Rockies to a 3-2 win over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night.
  
After Carlos Gonzalez doubled down the left field line with one out, Vizcaino (1-1) struck out Ian Desmond and intentionally walked Gerardo Parra. The runners advanced on a wild pitch before Vizcaino walked Trevor Story to load the bases.
  
Wolters looked at four straight pitches out of the strike zone, making a winner out of Adam Ottavino (2-0). The right-hander escaped a jam in the ninth when shortstop Story leaped to snare a two-out line drive by Nick Markakis that otherwise would have brought home Ozzie Albies.
  
Albies also flashed some great defense.
  
After Ryan Flaherty tied it with a single in the ninth off Rockies closer Wade Davis, Atlanta's second baseman saved the game - momentarily - with a diving catch of DJ LeMahieu's line drive up the middle for a rally-snuffing double play. Wolters, who might have scored the winning run, instead was doubled off second base.
  
In the 10th, Albies was plunked by Ottavino and with two outs stole second and advanced to third when catcher Wolter's throw sailed into center field.
  
Chad Bettis stood to get the win after giving up just one run and four hits in 5 2/3 innings, but the Braves rallied against Davis in the ninth to erase a 2-1 deficit. It was his first blown save in five chances.
  
The Braves went into the game with the major's most productive lineup, averaging eight runs a game and leading the majors with a .298 batting average and a .381 on-base percentage. But they were stifled by Bettis and the Rockies' refurbished bullpen until rallying in the ninth.
  
Anibal Sanchez is unbeaten in six career starts against the Rockies. He allowed two runs and seven hits over five innings. He struck out six and walked a pair of batters before leaving with Atlanta trailing 2-0 after five innings.
  
                Story homered for the second straight game, sending a fastball into the left field seats in the fourth, one inning after Nolan Arenado singled in a run .
  
Freddie Freeman's RBI double with two outs in the sixth made it 2-1 and chased Bettis.
  
TRAINER'S ROOM
  
Braves: 3B Johan Camargo (right oblique strain), who went 0 for 4 Friday while playing shortstop for Class A Florida, will move his rehab to Triple-A Gwinnett after DHing Saturday. "He feels good, health is not an issue," Snitker said. "It's just about wanting to see some pitches."

Atlanta sends LHP Sean Newcomb (0-1) to the mound Sunday in the series finale, and Colorado counters with LHP Kyle Freeland (0-1).
