The Colorado Rockies' playoff hopes are fading.

Wednesday night Kelly Johnson homered twice, James Parr pitched six more scoreless innings and the Atlanta Braves overcame a shaky bullpen to win 9-5 over the Rockies.

Chipper Jones homered for the Braves, who won it with a five-run seventh after the Rockies scored four in the top half to tie the game.

Parr extended his scoreless streak to 12 innings since coming up from the minors and left with a 4-0 lead. But all his good work was quickly undone by Atlanta's hapless bullpen.

Fortunately for the Braves, the Colorado relievers were just as bad.

The Rockies play the Braves again Thursday.
