Torrealba's hit wins it in 12th for Rockies

DENVER (AP) - Wilin Rosario scored from second on Yorvit Torrealba's single to left and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Atlanta Braves 6-5 in 12 innings on Wednesday.

Michael Cuddyer and Josh Rutledge homered for the Rockies, who ended a three-game skid behind one-hit pitching by the bullpen over the last six innings. Matt Belisle (1-1), the fourth reliever used by Colorado, pitched two perfect innings.

Rosario led off the 12th with a double to left off Luis Ayala (1-1). After Cuddyer was intentionally walked, Belisle, who had to bat with no one else left on the bench, struck out on a bunt attempt.

Torrealba ripped a single to left, and Justin Upton's throw home was wide as Rosario slid in with the winning run.

The Rockies rallied off closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth to deny Tim Hudson his 200th career win. Dexter Fowler hit a tying double off the wall in left with two outs. Jonathan Herrera hit a one-out double and pinch-hitter Troy Tulowitzki followed with a single before Eric Young Jr. struck out.

Hudson looked set for his milestone win after he allowed three runs on six hits in six innings, struck out three and helped out with an RBI single in the fourth.

It was 48 degrees at first pitch, more than double Tuesday's 23-degree start to the doubleheader. Sunshine bathed Coors Field in the final game of a 10-game homestand that included three postponements due to snow.

There was little evidence of the wintry weather Wednesday as the Braves completed their fourth series sweep of the season.

Right-hander Tyler Chatwood was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs before the game and made his first major league start of the season. He allowed five runs, four earned, on nine hits and struck out three in six innings.

He left trailing 5-3 after Atlanta scored twice in the fourth on Herrera's throwing error and Jordan Schafer's RBI single.

The Rockies took a 2-0 lead when Cuddyer and Rutledge homered off Hudson on consecutive at-bats. It was the first time this season Colorado has hit back-to-back home runs this season.

Atlanta rallied to take the lead in the fourth. Freddie Freeman's double to right scored Upton from first, Juan Francisco singled to center to drive in Freeman and Hudson's single made it 3-2.

Chatwood answered in the bottom of the inning with an RBI single that bounced off home plate, allowing Chris Nelson to score from third.
