Even after victory, Jones won’t miss Coors Field

‘This place is a roller-coaster ride from start to finish’
Chipper Jones will miss a lot of things about baseball when he retires after this season, but crazy games at Coors Field won’t be one of them. “This place,” Jones said, shaking his head. “Man.” Jones homered in the Braves’ 9-8, 11-inning victory Friday night, then applauded fellow veteran Todd Helton for enduring Colorado’s home ballpark for an entire season.
Todd Helton was 2-for-6 with two runs scored, three runs batted in and the 561st double of his career in a long 9-8, 11-inning loss to the Atlanta Braves on Friday at Coors Field.
Rockies rumpus

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez instituted a ban on Frisbee tossing in the outfield before games. “I put it in force three days ago,” Gonzalez said when asked if there was any connection to Mariano Rivera’s knee injury while shagging fly balls Thursday in Kansas City. “It isn’t bad, but I don’t want to have to ask any questions if something happened.” ... Todd Helton’s double in the sixth was No. 561 of his career, moving him into sole possession of 21st place.
