Recap


Rockies 7, Brewers 6: Tyler Colvin's two-run double in the bottom of the ninth inning allowed Colorado to erase a one-run deficit and complete a three-game sweep of Milwaukee.

Eric Young Jr. homered and Chris Nelson drove in three runs for the Rockies, who handed the Brewers their 14th loss in 15 road games since the All-Star break.

With Milwaukee nursing a 6-5 lead in the ninth, Wilin Rosario singled and advanced to third on Young's base hit. Colvin ended the contest with a double to left field off Jim Henderson (0-2) as Young raced around from first for the winning run.

The uprising allowed Will Harris (1-0) to pick up the win after two scoreless innings of relief.

Nyjer Morgan had a two-run single and Rickie Weeks and Corey Hart added RBI doubles during a five-run fifth inning for the Brewers.

With the game tied at 5, Weeks deposited a curveball from Matt Reynolds into shallow left field. Hart raced around to score without a throw as Morgan collected his third RBI of the contest.

Called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs prior to the game, Guillermo Moscoso pitched four scoreless innings before running into trouble in the fifth.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Making his fourth start - and first since daughter Ellyette Bay was born on Monday, Mark Rogers settled down after a difficult beginning and worked through six innings. ... Moscoso struggled in his previous stint with the Rockies, recording an 11.57 ERA in two starts. ... Milwaukee will begin a seven-game homestand on Thursday by beginning a four-game set versus Philadelphia. ... Colorado will host Miami for a four-game series, beginning Thursday.
