DENVER (AP) - All-Star Brad Hawpe hit a game-ending RBI double
and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Atlanta Braves 8-7 on
Sunday.

Seth Smith set up Hawpe's clutch hit with a one-out single off
Luis Valdez (0-1), who was making his major league debut. After
Garrett Atkins flied out, Hawpe lined a 1-1 pitch into right-center
to score Smith from first and give the Rockies a split of the
four-game series.

Hawpe, Smith and Troy Tulowitzki homered for Colorado, and
Huston Street (3-1) worked a perfect ninth for the win.

Brooks Conrad hit a two-run homer and finished with three hits
for Atlanta, which led 7-3 after six innings.
