Carlos Gonzalez had four hits, Tyler Chatwood pitched six effective innings and the Colorado Rockies beat the Milwaukee Brewers 8-6 on Tuesday night. Eric Young Jr. homered among his three hits and Wilin Rosario also connected for Colorado, which had 15 hits for the second straight night. Rafael Betancourt finished up a shaky ninth to record his 21st save. Martin Maldonado homered and Norichika Aoki had three hits for the Brewers, who had another late rally fall short. Chatwood (3-2), coming off five shutout innings in San Francisco, had another strong outing. He allowed two runs - one earned - on four hits and struck out three. The Rockies kept pounding Milwaukee pitchers. On Monday, they jumped in front early and they repeated the formula against Randy Wolf (3-9). Young led off the first with a double for the second straight night, Josh Rutledge was hit by a pitch and both runners moved up on a sacrifice. Gonzalez followed with a two-run single, Rosario doubled and Jordan Pacheco hit an RBI single that made it 4-0. The Brewers broke through in the third when Carlos Gomez scored on Aoki's two-out bunt single to make it 4-1. Pacheco hit an RBI single in the bottom half. Maldonado's leadoff homer in the fifth cut the lead to 5-2. Rosario hit a solo homer in the fifth, his 19th, and Young hit a two-run shot into the Rockies bullpen in the sixth to extend the lead to 8-2. Wolf came into the game 7-3 all-time against Colorado but couldn't match that success. He allowed six runs and 10 hits in five innings. The Brewers trailed 8-3 when they rallied in the ninth off Rex Brothers. Three straight hits, including an RBI double by Maldonado, brought in Betancourt. He allowed run-scoring singles by Jonathan Lucroy and Aoki before getting Rickie Weeks and Ryan Braun on flyouts to end the game. NOTES: Gonzalez recorded his third four-hit game of the season and the 12th of his career. ... Brewers RHP Mark Rogers will make his scheduled start Wednesday. He stayed behind for the birth of his daughter on Monday. ... Rockies OF Michael Cuddyer (right oblique) was scheduled to play Tuesday night for Triple-A Colorado Springs. He is eligible to come off the 15-day DL on Thursday. ... Rockies LHP Drew Pomeranz, who was scheduled to start Wednesday, had his outing pushed back to Sunday. The Rockies haven't announced who will start in his place.
