Gattis Hits 2 HRs, Braves Roll Past Rockies 7-0
ATLANTA (AP) — Evan Gattis homered twice to support Julio Teheran’s six scoreless innings and the Atlanta Braves beat the Colorado Rockies 7-0 on Sunday.
Justin Upton and Chris Johnson added two-run homers for the NL East-leading Braves, who have won six of eight.
Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki appeared to limp slightly as he walked off the field after his groundout ended the eighth. He left the game and there was no immediate report on his possible injury.
Gattis missed four games with viral symptoms. He returned with no hits and a walk in Saturday’s 3-1 loss to the Rockies before hitting a homer in the second and a two-run shot in the fourth off Franklin Morales (3-4) on Sunday.
