Trevor Story led off the ninth inning with a single, advanced to third on two wild pitches and scored the go-ahead run on a throwing error to help the Colorado Rockies beat the bumbling Atlanta Braves 4-3 on Saturday night.
 
Braves starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz began the eighth up 3-0, but let the first three batters reach and was chased by Nick Hundley's RBI single.
 
Hunter Cervenka's wild pitch scored Mark Reynolds, and second baseman Gordon Beckham's throwing error scored Hundley for a 3-all tie.
 
In the ninth, closer Jim Johnson (1-5) gave up a leadoff single to Story and threw wild pitches to two batters. Story scored when shortstop Erick Aybar bounced a throw on Reynolds' fielder's choice to A.J. Pierzynski, and ball bounced off the catcher's glove.
