Rockies 7, Brewers 6

Associated Press  |  Last updated August 15, 2012
Tyler Colvin hit a two-run double in the ninth inning and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-6 on Wednesday. Wilin Rosario started the rally with a one-out pinch-hit single to center off reliever Jim Henderson (0-2). Eric Young Jr., who homered earlier in the game, also singled to put runners at the corners. Colvin followed with a double down the first base line, scoring the speedy Young from first and giving the Rockies their first home sweep since May 28-31. Will Harris (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings to pick up his first major league win. Chris Nelson had two hits and drove in three runs and Carlos Gonzalez had two hits for the Rockies. Rickie Weeks had three hits and Nyjer Morgan had two hits and three RBIs for the Brewers, who have lost five of six. The Brewers used a five-run fifth inning to overcome an early 4-0 deficit and chase starter Guillermo Moscoso. Weeks and Corey Hart had RBI doubles, Morgan had a two-run single off reliever Carlos Torres and Jean Segura hit a sacrifice fly. The Rockies tied it in the bottom of the sixth on Nelson's RBI single, but Hart scored on Morgan's single with two outs in the seventh to make it 6-5. Starter Mark Rogers, who rejoined the team Tuesday after the birth of his daughter a day earlier, shook off a rough start. He allowed five runs and seven hits, walked two and struck out four. For the third straight game, the Rockies jumped out to a big lead in the first inning. This time, they scored all their runs with two outs. With runners on the corners, Ramon Hernandez's single to center scored Colvin. Jordan Pacheco walked to load the bases and Nelson followed with a two-run single to left. The Brewers escaped further damage when Pacheco was tagged out in a rundown between third and home. Young made it 4-0 with a two-out, solo homer in the third. It was his fourth of the year and second in as many games. NOTES: The 23,411 fans at Coors Field clapped when it was announced Seattle's Felix Hernandez had thrown a perfect game. ... Milwaukee's Ryan Braun was held out of the lineup. Manager Ron Roenicke said Braun, who is mired in a 6-for-42 slump, told him ''Nothing else is working so why don't we try to do this? It's a little of both of us trying to figure it out.'' ... Rockies OF Michael Cuddyer (oblique soreness) will start at first base for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Wednesday night. If he has no setback he could be activated from the 15-day DL when he's eligible Wednesday. ... Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki (groin surgery) took ground balls and ran the bases before Wednesday's game. He may join the Rockies on the road next week.
