Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Jordan Pacheco extended his hitting streak to 13 games, tallying two hits, including a solo homer, as the Colorado Rockies blanked the Atlanta Braves, 6-0, in the second test of a four-game set.

Pacheco, who holds the longest active hitting streak in the National League, is hitting .367 (18-for-49) with two long balls, eight RBI and nine runs scored during the torrid stretch.

Carlos Torres (4-1) replaced starter Drew Pomeranz in the fourth inning and scattered three hits over three shutout frames for Colorado, which defeated Atlanta for the first time in five tries this season.

Tommy Hanson (12-8) allowed two runs on five hits with two walks and eight strikeouts for the Braves, who have dropped four of their last six games.
