DENVER - (AP) Derek Lowe pitched six strong innings, Garrett Anderson and Diory Hernandez hit two-run doubles and the Atlanta Braves beat the Colorado Rockies 4-1 on Friday night.

Rafael Soriano three outs for his 11th save in 12 attempts.

Ubaldo Jimenez (6-9) gave up two runs and six hits, struck out eight and walked one in six innings.
