Associated Press  |  Last updated August 14, 2012
DJ LeMahieu had a career-best four hits, Jeff Francis pitched effectively into the sixth inning and the Colorado Rockies beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-6 on Monday night. Dexter Fowler, Eric Young Jr., Tyler Colvin and Chris Nelson each had two hits of Colorado's 15 hits. Every position player for the Rockies had at least one hit as they ended a four-game home losing streak. Carlos Gomez homered among his three hits and Rickie Weeks also homered for the Brewers. Milwaukee starter Mike Fiers couldn't duplicate his outing on Tuesday when was perfect through six innings against Cincinnati. Fiers (6-5) showed none of that sharpness in losing for the first time since July 22. He came into the game 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA in August but was hit hard early. The Rockies started the game with three consecutive hits and took a 3-0 lead. They tacked on another run in the second before blowing it open in a four-run third. The first six Colorado batters got hits in the inning, with Fiers giving up the first four. He left after Colvin's RBI double made it 6-0. Mike McClendon came on and allowed RBI singles to Nelson and LeMahieu that pushed the lead to 8-0. Fiers allowed eight runs on nine hits and struck out one in two-plus innings. It was his shortest start of the season and the first time this year he failed to go at least five innings. The Brewers got one back in the fourth on Corey Hart's RBI grounder. Gomez hit a two-run homer - his 11th - in the sixth to make it 8-3 and chase Francis. Francis (4-4) allowed three runs on six hits, walked two and struck out two in 5 1-3 innings. He picked up his first win since beating Arizona on July 25. LeMahieu's RBI single in the seventh- his fourth hit of the game - made it 9-3. Weeks hit a three-run home run off Will Harris in the ninth. It was his 13th of the season. NOTES: Rockies C Wilin Rosario allowed his 14th passed ball of the season, a club record. ... Brewers RHP Mark Rogers stayed home to await the delivery of his child. Rogers is scheduled to pitch Wednesday. ... Rockies RHP Jhoulys Chacin (pectoral injury) and LHP Jorge De La Rosa (elbow surgery) threw successful bullpen sessions Monday.
