Austin Riley and Ronald Acuña Jr. homered in support of another great performance by Kyle Wright to help the Atlanta Braves to a 3-2 win over the Colorado Rockies. Wright was excellent tossing seven shutout innings to go along with six strikeouts. Riley gave Atlanta an early 2-0 lead in the first inning with his 32nd home run of the season. Acuña returned to the lineup for the first time in three games and delivered a 444 foot solo shot in the fifth inning for his 11th home run of the season. Kenley Jansen allowed a two-run home run to Rockies’ rookie Michael Toglia in the ninth, but got Sean Bouchard to ground out to end the game for his 30th save of the season.
