Simmons' RBI triple wins it in 10th for Atlanta

ATLANTA (AP) - Andrelton Simmons drove in Dan Uggla from first base with a triple off Edgmer Escalona in the 10th inning, and the Atlanta Braves won their fourth straight game with a 9-8 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night.

After Uggla led off with a walk, Simmons hit the ball too deep into the gap in left-center field for Carlos Gonzalez and Dexter Fowler to keep it from reaching the wall.

Scott Downs (1-0) earned the win after being acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Angels earlier in the day and arriving at Turner Field not long before the first pitch. The left-hander allowed one hit and struck out one in 1 1-3 innings.

Escalona (1-4) allowed one hit, one run and one walk in 12 pitches.
