Rockies Vs. Brewers: Carlos Gonzalez, Wilin Rosario Homer In 6-2 Victory Over Milwaukee

The Colorado Rockies picked themselves up on Wednesday evening with a 6-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. The outcome of this game was rarely in doubt as the pitching was strong all nine innings. This was the team's first win at Miller Park in 2011.

Kevin Millwood (3-2, 3.68 ERA) went six inning and allowed two runs. The first came in the first inning after Corey Hart hit a leadoff triple and then scored on a Nyjer Morgan ground out. Then in the sixth inning, Nyjer Morgan led off with a single and moved to third on a single and a ground out. Morgan then scored on a Millwood wild pitch.

That was all the Brewers could do. Matt Belisle, Huston Street, Rex Brothers and Rafael Betancourt kept the Brewers off the board for the final three innings.

The Rockies' offense got to Shaun Marcum (12-7, 3.40 ERA) for three straight innings. In the third inning, Dexter Fowler reached on a fielder's choice and then scored on a Mark Ellis single to center field. Ellis then scored on Carlos Gonzalez's 26th home run on the season (he added a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning). One inning later, Wilin Rosario homered to left field for his second career home run. Jason Giambi completed the scoring with an RBI double in the fifth inning.

The Rockies (70-78, 32-42 away) start the final homestand of the season with a series against the San Francisco Giants.
