The Brewers were three outs from winning when the rain picked up and caused a 1-hour 45-minute delay in the middle of the ninth inning. Jim Henderson then retired the Rockies in order for his 12th save.
It made a winner out of Tom Gorzelanny (2-4) who allowed four runs and six hits in 5 1/3 innings. He was sharp early giving up just three hits and not allowing a runner to second through the first five innings as the Brewers built a six-run lead.
Gorzelanny then ran into trouble in the sixth when the rain start...

The suspension will total out to 65 games, which is in between...
