DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies overcame a nine-run deficit,
matching the biggest rally in team history and stunning the Atlanta
Braves 12-10 Thursday on Troy Tulowitzki's go-ahead single in the
eighth inning.

Down 10-1 in the third inning, the Rockies chipped away against
the NL East leader before taking the lead with four runs in the

Tulowitzki and Todd Helton followed with RBI singles.

runs, and the major league mark is 12.
