DENVER -- Starting pitchers arent supposed to have stat lines quite like this -- winning ones, anyway. Rookie shortstops arent supposed to make it look this easy for an entire series.Just that kind of weekend for Colorado.Tyler Chatwood allowed one hit over five erratic innings, Trevor Story lined his fourth homer in three games and the Rockies swept the Atlanta Braves with a 7-2 win Sunday.Four-game sweeps are extremely difficult in this league, next to impossible, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. So thats an accomplishment right there.Chatwood (9-6) finished with an intriguing line: a career-high eight walks, one hit -- Freddie Freemans single in the first -- six strikeouts and no runs. Hes the 16th pitcher in major league history to post that sort of roller-coaster line and go at least five, according to the Rockies.Thats not a normal stat line for a starter, said DJ LeMahieu, whose team captured all four from the Braves after losing two of three to struggling Tampa Bay. He grinded.Just as intriguing was Storys line for the Atlanta series: 7 for 14 with four homers and nine RBI.Nah, thats not normal, either, LeMahieu said. Not for anybody.Nolan Arenado jumpstarted the offense with a three-run homer in the first and LeMahieu added a solo shot in the fourth as the Rockies captured their 10th straight victory over the Braves at Coors Field.Story launched a two-run shot in the fourth a day after breaking the NL rookie record for most homers by a shortstop. He now has 27 this season and moves closer to the major league rookie record for a shortstop. Nomar Garciaparra had 30 with Boston in 1997.Tyrell Jenkins (0-2) surrendered three homers and seven runs in 3 1/3 innings.He was just kind of off, Braves interim manager Brian Snitker said. Didnt have the crispness and the bounce in his step that he had prior.Chatwood walked a batter in every frame and left after throwing 97 pitches, just 51 of them for strikes.Effectively wild, I think they call that, Chatwood said. I thought my stuff was really good today.Normally, if you walk guys, youre going to get hurt here. Anytime you can do that and get away with it, its always nice.Rockies reliever Gonzalez Germen surrendered both runs in the seventh. Freeman had an RBI double and Nick Markakis brought in the other on a grounder.Atlanta left 10 runners on base.It seemed like we shouldve been the one running away with the game, really, with all the baserunners we had, Snitker said.This certainly helped set the tone: The Rockies sent 10 batters to the plate as part of a four-run first. Arenado had the big hit with a rare homer to right.Of course, the story of the day was the rookie shortstop. For the weekend, too. All season, for that matter, as Story began by hitting 10 homers in April, tying for most ever by a rookie.I dont like to look back on things right now, Story said. I just put my head down and work every day.TRAINERS ROOMBraves: RHP Julio Teheran threw from 90 feet Sunday and didnt feel pain two days after leaving a game early with tightness in his right lat. He remains hopeful he can make his next scheduled start. We still have to wait, Teheran said. I dont feel any pain and thats a good sign.Rockies: OF Gerardo Parra (sprained left ankle) looks real good, Weiss said, and could head out for a rehab assignment as soon as this week. ... The Rockies are expected to call up 2012 first-round pick David Dahl on Monday, according to a Denver Post report . The outfielder is batting .484 with five homers and 16 RBI for Triple-A Albuquerque. Dahl was limited to 73 games for Double-A New Britain last season after suffering a lacerated spleen in an outfield collision.EMULATING JUNIORIf Carlos Gonzalezs swing looks familiar, its because he modeled it after Ken Griffey Jr., who was inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday.Even Gonzalezs bat drop after a homer is borrowed from Griffey.He meant a lot for the game and part of the reason I swing the way I swing is because of him, said Gonzalez, who lives in Windermere, Florida, during the offseason and frequently runs into Griffey. Ive got to thank him.UP NEXTBraves: After Mondays day off, Atlanta plays a two-game series in Minnesota. RHP Lucas Harrell (1-2) goes for the Braves on Tuesday and RHP Ervin Santana (3-8) for the Twins.Rockies: LHP Jorge De La Rosa (6-7) takes the mound Monday to kick off a three-game series in Baltimore.

They tanked the following year, losing 86 games and forcing an overhaul of the entire front office, coaching staff and a majority of the roster.This brings the Mariners to the end of the 2016 season. Once again, Seattle was in contention for the playoffs heading into the final weekend, only to fall short. Once again, there is a buzz and optimism that Seattle could be on the cusp of being a breakout team next season.Why would this be any different than the last time Seattle was in this place two years ago?Were not the same old Mariners. Were not, Seattle manager Scott Servais said. I think if people watched us closely this year, and the personalities of the team, got to see the team, theyd realize that this is a different group. ... We laid a foundation and well build upon that, but it is not the same old Mariners.Seattle heads into the offseason still with the longest playoff drought in baseball -- now at 15 years -- but the belief it will be ending soon. Seattle was equal parts entertaining and infuriating in posting an 86-76 record that put them on the outside of the AL playoff picture.It was a roller coaster of a season. Consider that between April 24 and the end of the season, Seattle spent only one day under .500. But it took until game No. 160 for Seattle to get any better than 10 games over .500.The Mariners lived in the space between contender and average. But the late surge that put Seattle into contention validated for Servais the processes he put in place and the changes that were made from the previous regime.I wish it was easy as just putting it all on paper, Servais said. Its not. Players change, seasons change, and you just have to wait and see, but I feel great about our team, I really do.Other things to know as the team looks toward 2017:MEN IN THE MIDDLE: Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager combinedd to post three of the better seasons for any position players in the American League.dddddddddddd Cano showed the injuries he played through last year truly were impacting his performance at the plate, rebounding to hit .298 with a career-high 39 home runs and 103 RBI. Cruz posted his third straight 40-homer season with 43 homers and 105 RBI. And Seager reached 30 homers for the first time in his career and finished with 99 RBI.RECLAIM THE THRONE: Felix Hernandez was far from kingly in 2016. Hernandezs most inconsistent season ended at 11-9 with a 3.82 ERA, his highest since 2007. He was slowed by a calf injury that cost him two months and Seattles rotation never fully recovered. Servais was blunt on the final day that Hernandez needs to be in better shape for 2017 and continue his evolution as pitcher. Hes not a high-90s strikeout machine anymore but Seattle needs him to return to being the ace of its staff.YOUNG STARS: Young closer Edwin Diaz emerged this season as a minor-league call-up who ended up becoming crucial to Seattles run. Who will it be next year? Maybe outfielders Ben Gamel and Guillermo Heredia, who give Seattle the athleticism it wants defensively in the outfield but need to be better at the plate to become regulars in the lineup. Perhaps its time for minor-league slugger Tyler ONeill to finally get his chance in the majors.One name to watch: first baseman Daniel Vogelbach. Acquired from the Cubs, Vogelbach could be primed for a major role in Seattles lineup going into next season.WIN THE WEST: Servais was thrilled to be in the race in his first season. He was bothered it was for the wild card and not the AL West. The Mariners led the division into late May and by the end of June, the wild card was the only option left. With the talent that Texas and Houston have, the Mariners have quite the task if theyre going to reach the top.Everyone has the feeling that we can make it, Cano said. I hope everyone goes and prepares themselves not to play just 162 games. ' ' '
