The Rockies' offense didn't show up at SunTrust Park until two were out in the ninth inning Saturday night -- right on time, it turned out. After scoring three times in the ninth to tie, the Rockies used DJ LeMahieu's solo homer to spearhead a 2-run 10th, leading them to their seventh victory in eight games, 5-3, over the Braves.

Saturday Pebble Report: Matt Holliday destroys a baseball, inching close to MLB return

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Friday, August 17, 2018

If you’ve been following Purple Row over the last few weeks you’d be forgiven for thinking that we have a bit of a thing for Matt Holliday. But he’s technically not a prospect so he hasn’t made it much into the Pebble Reports. But that’s because he hasn’t hit a home run like the one he hit on Friday.

As promised, here is video of Matt Holliday's home run from tonight.
