DENVER ) — 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.
