DENVER, Co (TSN-WSAU) Rickie Weeks' two-run double jumpstarted a five-run ninth inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers salvaged a game from this three-contest set with Colorado by beating the Rockies, 6-1.
Weeks, Corey Hart and Prince Fielder blasted three consecutive doubles in the final inning to propel the Brewers to only their second win in their last 13 games at Coors Field. Hart finished with two hits and three RBI, and George Kottaras also had a pair of hits in the win.
Randy Wolf did not factor into the decision after allowing just one run, three hits and four walks in seven strong innings. Trevor Hoffman (2-4) earned the win with a perfect eighth inning.
Brad Hawpe's home run accounted for all of Colorado's offense, as the Rockies had a three-game win streak snapped. Aaron Cook's line matched Wolf's, as he gave up one run, three hits and four walks in seven innings, but Manuel Corpas (1-4) yielded five runs without recording an out to take the loss.
In the ninth, with the game deadlocked at one, the Brewers took control.
With Corpas pitching for Colorado, Kottaras led off with a double and moved to third when Alcides Escobar reached on a fielder's choice. After pinch-hitter Joe Inglett walked to load the bases, Weeks launched a two-run double off the wall in center, and Hart followed with another double to plate a pair for a 5-1 advantage.
Juan Rincon came on to get out of the mess, but Fielder greeted him with an RBI double for a five-run Milwaukee lead, which held as the final margin.
The teams traded runs early on, and then the pitchers took over.
Wolf's lone blemish came in the second inning, when Hawpe took him deep for a one-out solo shot.
Cook's only mistake was in the third, after he issued back-to-back one-out walks to Wolf and Weeks. Hart followed with a base hit to allow Wolf to score and tie the game.
The Brewers are off on Monday, and play the Twins at Miller Park on Tuesday.
