Heyward lifts Braves past Rockies, 4-3 in ninth

ATLANTA (AP) - Rookie Jason Heyward drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single with two outs in the ninth inning, lifting the Atlanta Braves to a 4-3 comeback win over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

The Braves rallied in the ninth off Rockies fill-in closer Franklin Morales (0-1), who loaded the bases by giving up a single and two walks.

The Braves won two of three against Colorado, which took a 4-0 win on Ubaldo Jimenez's no-hitter on Saturday night.

Eric O'Flaherty (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth in relief of Jair Jurrjens.

Heyward, who leads the Braves with 15 RBIs, was 1 for 3 with three RBIs and two walks. He is hitting .302.

Morales has blown two of his four saves opportunities.
