DENVER (AP) -- All-Star Brad Hawpe hit a game-ending RBI double and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Atlanta Braves 8-7 on Sunday.
Seth Smith set up Hawpe's clutch hit with a one-out single off Luis Valdez (0-1), who was making his major league debut. After Garrett Atkins flied out, Hawpe lined a 1-1 pitch into right-center to score Smith from first and give the Rockies a split of the four-game series.
Hawpe, Smith and Troy Tulowitzki homered for Colorado, and Huston Street (3-1) worked a perfect ninth for the win.
Brooks Conrad hit a two-run homer and finished with three hits for Atlanta, which led 7-3 after six innings.
