Yunel Escobar hit a three-run homer in a nine-run fourth inning and the Atlanta Braves beat the Colorado Rockies 12-4 on Wednesday night for their second straight lopsided win in the series.

The Rockies, who gave up 10 runs in the seventh inning of their 11-4 loss at Pittsburgh on Sunday, were tied 1-1 with the Braves before the big inning.

The Braves beat the Rockies 8-1 on Tuesday night, then set a season high with the 12 runs Wednesday. The nine-run inning was their biggest of the season.

Atlanta lost leadoff hitter Omar Infante in the sixth inning. He broke a bone in his left hand when hit by a pitch from Manny Corpas.

The Rockies have lost six of eight to fall a season-low nine games below .500.
