Ozzie Albies homered on the first pitch of Ryan Feltner’s major league debut, one of four home runs for the Atlana Braves in a 9-2 win over the Colorado Rockies.

Austin Riley, Adam Duvall and Travis d’Arnaud also went deep for the Braves, who received a strong pitching performance from Charlie Morton. The right-hander pitched seven innings, allowing two runs on two hits.

He walked two and struck out three in helping the NL East-leading Braves maintain a two-game lead over the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Rockies scored their runs on an RBI grounder by Brendan Rodgers and a sacrifice fly by Ryan McMahon.
