The Atlanta Braves defeated the Colorado Rockies 14-6 on Sunday afternoon in the finale of a four-game set at Truist Park. This led to a series sweep for the Braves, who have won their last six straight games.
Colorado took an early lead with five runs off Charlie Morton during the first two innings. However, Atlanta charged back. Eddie Rosario led that charge with a total of six RBIs to include a three-run homer which got the Braves on the board in the bottom of the second inning, an RBI single in the third, and a two-run shot in the sixth.
Ozzie Albies hit a three-run homer that put the Braves ahead of the Rockies in the fourth. Michael Harris II had a three-run bomb in the fifth.
Ryan McMahon homered twice for the Rockies. He had a two-run shot in the first and a solo home run in the seventh.
Morton was credited with the win for Atlanta after giving up five runs (only three of them earned) and five hits, walking three, and striking out eight over five innings. Chase Anderson was charged with the loss for Colorado.
