The Atlanta Braves edged the Colorado Rockies 8-7 on Sunday in the finale of a four-game series in Denver, CO, which allowed the Braves to complete their first-ever sweep out at Coors Field in the team’s history. They also rose above .500 with a record of 28-27 on the 2022 season.

Each team scored three runs in the first inning. Matt Olson delivered the tie-breaker with a three-run homer for Atlanta during the top of the second.

Ronald Acuna Jr. matched a career-high with four hits to include a solo home run in the top of the eighth.

Brendan Rogers, Brian Serven, and Charlie Blackmon all had home runs for the Rockies.

Charlie Morton was credited with the win for Atlanta after surrendering four runs and six hits, walking three, and striking out eight through five innings of work. Kenley Jansen staved off a Rockies threat in the ninth to set the save. Ryan Feltner was charged with the loss for Colorado.

Thus ends a seven game road trip out west for the Braves that began with two consecutive losses in Arizona to the Diamondbacks and wrapped up with five straight wins to include one over the D’backs and the sweep in Colorado over the Rockies.

The Braves have today off and will be back on their home field at Truist Park to open a six-game homestand on Tuesday night with the first outing of a two game interleague set against the Oakland A’s. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:20 pm. Listen on WLAQ 1410 AM or 96.9 FM; air time is 6:05 pm.
