ATLANTA (AP) - Michael Cuddyer and Troy Tulowitzki each homered, Juan Nicasio solved the Braves and the Colorado Rockies beat Atlanta 3-1 on Saturday.

The Rockies were missing some of their big bats as Carlos Gonzalez missed his third straight start with a swollen finger and Nolan Arenado was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a broken finger.

Nicasio (5-2) didn't need much offense. The right-hander turned around his ugly history against the Braves - 0-3 and 9.82 ERA in four starts. He gave up only two hits in six shutout innings. Nicasio pitched around four walks and had five strikeouts.

Atlanta's Mike Minor (2-3) allowed three runs on four hits - including the two homers - in 6 2-3 innings.
