DENVER (AP) - Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez overcame a shaky start and Matt Holliday hit two run-scoring singles in the Colorado Rockies' 4-3 win over the hard-luck Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night.
Each of the Braves' five losses so far have come by one run.
The Rockies still haven't busted out of their offensive funk, but they finally topped the three-run mark in a game. Coming in, they had scored just 12 times in their first seven games, the lowest run production in the majors and half the number of runs that they had scored in their previous worst start, in 2002.
