The Colorado Rockies leave Atlanta battered and beaten. An injury-depleted Rockies squad has now lost five straight games after the Braves finished off a four-game sweep with a 6-3 victory yesterday afternoon at Turner Field. Rockies starting pitcher Juan Nicasio failed to make it out of the third inning, allowing five runs in that frame. Rockies starters have posted an unsightly 10.13 ERA during the team’s five-game losing skid. Tim Hudson worked into the eighth inning, limiting the Rockies to three runs. Jason Giambi had a pair of RBI to highlight the Rockies offensive efforts. The Rockies have now dropped a season-high six games below the .500 mark. They head to the nation’s capital for three games against the Washington Nationals this weekend. ESPN Radio 1410 has game one of that series tonight, with pregame coverage at 5:30 and the first pitch at 6:05.
