DENVER, July 21 (UPI) -- Brooks Conrad homered off Matt Reynolds in a four-run seventh inning Thursday as the Atlanta Braves rallied to down Colorado 9-6.

Reynolds (0-2) entered the game with the Rockies leading 6-5 and gave up a solo home run to Conrad, a double to Alex Gonzalez and an RBI triple to Nate McLouth.

The rally made a winner of Tommy Hanson (11-5), even though he gave up a season-high six runs in six innings. Craig Kimbrel worked the ninth for his 30th save.

Jason Heyward was 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run homer and Freddie Freeman had a solo shot for Braves, who split a four-game series with Colorado.

Carlos Gonzales had a home run and Dexter Fowler had a two-run triple for the Rockies.
