    That's what happened, as the Rockies beat the Braves, 6-5, in 12 innings. To beat the Braves on Wednesday and avoid getting swept in a three-game series, the Rockies had to overcome vaunted Braves closer Craig Kimbrel when they were down to their last out in the ninth, and then find a way to win in extra innings. He scored from second on Yorvit Torrealba 's single to left and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Atlanta Braves 6-5 in 12 innings on Wednesday. The Rockies broke a season-high three-game losing streak. The Rockies used all available position players and by the 11th inning Torrealba, a catcher, was playing first base. Matt Belisle , the fourth reliever used by Colorado, pitched two perfect innings. With one out in the 12th, Yorvit Torrealba singled, scoring Wilin Rosario, who had led off the inning with a double against Luis Ayala.
