DENVER -- The Atlanta Braves have gone more than two years at Coors Field without walking off the field, exchanging high-fives and savoring a victory.Indeed, the Colorado Rockies, who beat the Braves 7-3 in the opener of a four-game series Thursday night, have won seven straight games against the Braves at Coors Field, dating back to June 11, 2014. The Rockies seven-game winning streak against the Braves at Coors Field is the longest in franchise history.Julio Teheran will try to put an end to all that winning and continue his mastery over the Rockies when he makes his second consecutive start against them Friday night.On Sunday, Teheran pitched seven scoreless innings against the Rockies at Turner Field but wasnt involved in the decision when the Braves scored in the ninth to win 1-0.Teheran, who is 3-8 with a 2.79 ERA in 19 starts, is 4-1 with a 2.79 ERA against the Rockies in six starts.Jon Gray, who matched Teheran with seven scoreless innings Sunday, will again oppose him. Gray is 5-4 with a 4.33 ERA in 16 starts. He has a team-leading 103 strikeouts and 32 walks in 95 2/3 innings. He leads the Rockies with 11 quality starts and has pitched at least seven innings a team-high seven times. This will be Grays eighth start this season at Coors Field, where he is 3-0 with a 4.71 ERA and has allowed nine walks and 37 hits in 42 innings with 47 strikeouts.The latter statistic is a crucial indicator at Coors Field to Gray, 24, who is in his first full season in the big leagues.I think thats really the way you have to live here, he said. I dont necessarily think its a sinker thing or a ground ball thing. I just think you have to miss bats and be unpredictable. Dont let guys eliminate (the possibility of seeing) pitches.Gray has gotten considerably more comfortable as the season has gone on with his curveball, a pitch he started throwing in spring training.Even just show them the curveball first pitch for a strike -- they havent my slider yet and Ive already got a strike on them, Gray said. So Ive only got two more to go. Im looking for a quality pitch and with two strikes, its put-away time.In addition to a mid-90s fastball, a sharp-breaking slider and his curveball, Gray also throws a changeup.I feel like every pitch is there right now, he said. I feel like every pitch is a weapon.One of the Braves hitters Gray will oppose is Nick Markakis, who had a rather unusual streak end Thursday night. On his final at-bat in the ninth inning, Markakis struck out, swinging and missing strike three from Jason Motte.Markakis had gone 32 plate appearances without having swung and missed a pitch, a streak that began July 10 in the final game before the All-Star break and went seven full games and most of an eighth.Markakis hasnt reached 100 strikeouts in a season since 2008 and entered this season averaging one strikeout every 6.9 at-bats, which is good in todays game. This season, Markakis is hitting .260 in 94 games with 23 doubles, five homers and 47 RBI. He has 58 strikeouts and is averaging one strikeout every 6.2 at-bats.Hes got such a great eye at the plate, interim Braves manager Brian Snitker said. He doesnt expand the strike zone. Hes as disciplined a hitter as Ive seen. Its almost like if he takes a pitch, it probably was a ball.Hes got a really good eye, a good feel for the strike zone. Its like his at-bats, he really slows everything down to where he stays with balls a long time. Doesnt go out of the strike zone, obviously.

WASHINGTON -- The Colorado Rockies called up Stephen Cardullo from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, the first time the 28-year-old infielder-outfielder has been on an active major league roster.Hours after his promotion, Cardullo was batting second and playing first base against the Washington Nationals.Cardullo hit .308 with 17 home runs and 72 RBI in 115 games for the Isotopes this season. Prior to that, he spent four years in independent ball and was the MVP of the Canadian-American Association in 2015.Anyone playing baseball, whether its independent ball or still in the minors, you have that dream, Cardullo said.Cardullo played in 2012 in the Frontier League for the Canadian-based London Rippers, a team that folded midseason.You have that hope inside your heart that you can make it to the major leagues. I think thats what everyone feels. I was just lucky enough to be given the opportunity and Im very fortunate.Cardullo played collegiately as a walk-on at Florida State University.

I told him when he came into my office that nothing is ever given to you, that you have to earn everything to get here and hes done that and then some. Hes gone above and beyond in that department.Triple-A manager Glenallen Hill informed Cardullo of his move at an Albuquerque team meeting at which point his Isotopes teammates mobbed him. The congratulatory wishes have continued since joining the Rockies in Washington.Its his first day in the big leagues and Im sure hes already earned a lot of respect from his teammates, Weiss said. Everyone in that room knows how difficult it is to get here and you multiply by about 10 when you think of his story.The Rockies optioned infielder Ben Paulsen to Triple-A and transferred right-hander Scott Oberg to the 60-day disabled list.Paulsen hit .115 (3 for 26) with one RBI and one walk in 10 games since being recalled from Albuquerque on Aug. 12.
