All three of the Rockies' ninth-inning runs came with two outs, as Ian Desmond had a two-run double, and Gerardo Parra tied the game with an RBI single. Nolan Arenado gave the Rockies the insurance in the 10th with an RBI single that scored Carlos Gonzalez, who doubled following LeMahieu's long ball.
This rally came against fill-in closer A.J. Minter, who suffered the blown save on this tough night, blowing a 3-0 lead in the ninth. Minter took over for the injured closer Arodys Vizcaino, who went on the disabled list last month with a shoulder injury.
The Braves did have a chance to win the game in the bottom of the ninth, but stranded a runner at third base to end the threat. Dansby Swanson struck out with the winning run just 90 feet away, as Adam Ottavino got out of the inning to earn his fifth win. Wade Davis finished things off in the 10th for his 34th save, giving the Rockies a win in the first three games of this four-game series.
Elsewhere, the Diamondbacks fell on the road against the San Diego Padres, 7-6, in walk-off fashion, pulling the Rockies within a half-game of the first-place D-Backs. Colorado will go for the series sweep in the series finale on Sunday afternoon, and could possibly be atop the division by the end of the weekend.
