Rockies 9 Braves 7, 11 innings

DENVER (AP) -- Matt Holliday hit a two-run home run in the eleventh inning to help the Colorado Rockies avoid a three-game series sweep with a 9-to-7 win over Atlanta.

Denny Bautista worked a scoreless eleventh for the win. He's 1-and-0.

Colorado's Troy Tulowitzki had an unassisted triple play in the seventh inning.

After Kelly Johnson and Edgar Renteria singled, Tulowitzki caught Chipper Jones' line drive behind second base. Tulowitzki stepped on the bag to double up Johnson and tagged Renteria for the third out. It was the 13th unassisted triple play in major league history and the second by Colorado.

Scott Thorman homered and drove in a career-best four runs with a career-best four hits for the Braves.
