ATLANTA -- Nolan Arenado combined with Trevor Story to homer on consecutive pitches in the fourth inning, then hit a tiebreaking double in the sixth that led the Colorado Rockies over the Atlanta Braves 8-4 on Friday night for their ninth win in 11 games.
Daniel Murphy went 3 for 4 with two doubles for the Rockies, who had seven extra-base hits.
Tyler Flowers homered twice for the Braves, who have lost three of four.
Story homered on a changeup to tie the score 1-1 and Arenado connected on a curveball. Story has hit safely in a career-best 14 straight games and is batting .362 over that span
Colorado starter Antonio Senzatela (2-1) gave up three runs, seven hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings. Wade Davis struck out Freddie Freeman, his only batter, to strand two runners on and earn his fourth save in four chances.
Max Fried allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings.
Atlanta 3B Josh Donaldson dropped to a knee and backhanded a hard grounder before throwing out Murphy on a tag at the plate in the second. ... Rockies CF Ian Desmond timed his jump on the warning track to catch Donaldson's long fly against the wall with a runner on in the seventh.
Braves LF Ronald Acuna Jr. scaled the wall in left in the fourth but had the ball fall out of his glove on Story's homer.
Rockies: LHP Kyle Freeland threw a bullpen session before the game and could return to the rotation next week. He is on the 10-day IL with a left middle finger blister. ... LHP Chris Rusin, sidelined with a mid-back strain, and LHP Jake McGee, out with a left knee sprain, are expected to throw bullpen sessions on Saturday.
Braves: RHP Mike Foltynewicz, an All-Star last season, returns to the rotation Saturday after being sidelined since spring training with a right elbow bone spur. He went 1-1 with a 6.11 ERA in four rehab starts with Triple-A Gwinnett. "The line wasn't what the stuff was," manager Brian Snitker said. "His stuff was right where it needs to be. Physically, everything is great. He won't have, really, any limitations."
Rockies: RHP Jon Gray (2-3) has won two straight starts and posted a 0.92 ERA in his last three starts.
Braves: Foltynewicz will make his first start of the season after missing 25 games with a right elbow bone spur.
