Minor, streaking Braves dominate Rockies, 9-0

August 1st, 2013 - By Steve James

Mike Minor allowed only two hits in

seven scoreless innings, Brian McCann hit a three-run homer in

Atlanta’s seven-run third, and the Braves beat the Colorado Rockies

9-0 Wednesday night for their sixth straight win.

Freddie Freeman drove in two runs with four hits as

the Braves continued their offensive surge with 15 hits. The Braves

have scored 29 runs while winning the first three games of the

four-game series.

The Braves lead second-place Washington by 11 games

in the NL East, their biggest advantage in nine years.

Minor (11-5) didn’t walk a batter and didn’t allow a

Colorado baserunner to reach second base.

Tyler Chatwood (7-4) allowed a career-high seven

earned runs on 10 hits, one walk and one hit batter in only 2 1-3

innings.

Colorado’s Carlos Gonzalez left the game in the

fourth inning after aggravating his sprained right middle finger.
