When the amazing starts to become the norm, you know the going is good.

The going is great for the Colorado Rockies, who authored another late-inning comeback in Saturday night's 5-3 win over the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park.

Down 3-0 in the bottom of the ninth, Ian Desmond drilled a two-out, two-run double to left. Gerardo Parra followed with a single to chase Desmond home and the game was tied, 3-3.

Adam Ottavino stranded the game-winning run at third base in the bottom of the ninth before the Rockies scored a pair of runs in the tenth.

D.J. LeMahieu homered to center to make it 4-3. After Carlos Gonzalez doubled, Nolan Arenado grounded an RBI single to center. 5-3 Rockies.

All that remained was for Wade Davis to work a 1-2-3 bottom of the tenth.

Ball game.

Just another night at the office for the Rockies.
