Recap


Rockies 7, Brewers 3: Juan Nicasio won for the first time in nearly a year and Wilin Rosario had three hits, including a two-run homer, as visiting Colorado won the rubber match of a three-game set against Milwaukee.

Nicasio (1-0), who started only 11 games last season after undergoing microfracture knee surgery, made his first start since June 2 and collected his first win since defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 30. The right-hander allowed two runs and seven hits, walking two and striking out a pair in six innings.

Wily Peralta (0-1) allowed his first homer in six career starts and gave up four runs on six hits, walking three and striking out four over 5 1/3 innings. Rickie Weeks finished 3-for-4 and scored twice while Ryan Braun went 2-for-2 and drew a pair of walks.

Rosario opened the scoring in the second, ending an eight-pitch at-bat by driving Peralta’s low fastball into the second deck in left. Weeks countered with a solo shot in the third and Alex Gonzalez plated Braun three batters later with a single to shallow left to knot the game at two.

Reid Brignac made his first significant contribution as a Rockie when he roped a line-drive double off the left-field wall in the fifth and Eric Young Jr. followed with a single to score Brignac two batters later. Braun trimmed the deficit to 4-3 in the seventh with an RBI double, but Michael Cuddyer and Dexter Fowler each homered off struggling Brewers closer John Axford in the ninth to put the game away.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Colorado belted eight home runs in the three-game series, getting two apiece from Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez and Fowler. … Milwaukee 3B Aramis Ramirez committed his first error on a ball in fair territory since May 14. … The Rockies collected 41 hits against the Brewers over the three games, posting at least 12 in each contest.
