Rockies Vs. Braves Final Score: Atlanta Takes 1-0 Victory

The Atlanta Braves defeated the Colorado Rockies, 1-0, to earn their third win of a four-game series on Thursday afternoon. Tim Hudson pitched well for the Braves, going seven shutout innings.

The Rockies handed the Braves their only run when Jhoulys Chacin mishandled a routine return throwback from the catcher. Juan Francisco alertly scored on the play. Chacin took the loss after allowing just the one unearned run.

Francisco was on third after being moved over on a ground rule double by Dan Uggla. The double was the only extra-base hit for the Braves in the game.

The Braves move to 4-3 on this homestand with the series victory over the Rockies. They travel to New York next to start a six-game road trip.
