After becoming the first team in the majors to record 50 victories, the Milwaukee Brewers look to continue their dominance against the Colorado Rockies when the teams reconvene at Miller Park on Saturday. Milwaukee has won all five meetings with Colorado this season while emerging victorious in nine of its last 12 overall. Ryan Braun provided the honors after getting hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the seventh before his walk-off RBI single gave the Brewers a 3-2 triumph on Friday."It's nice to be the first one to 50 wins, for sure," Braun said. "We're excited with the way that we've played so far, but there's a still a lot of baseball left." The reeling Rockies likely aren't too pleased after dropping 10 of their last 11 overall while being outscored 28-9 during a five-game road skid. Josh Rutledge highlighted his three-hit performance with a solo homer in the ninth, but the good vibes were quickly erased by Braun's heroics.TV: 4:10 p.m. ET, ROOT (Colorado), Fox Sports Wisconsin (Milwaukee)PITCHING MATCHUP: Rockies RH Jhoulys Chacin (1-6, 4.84 ERA) vs. Brewers RH Matt Garza (4-5, 4.01)Chacin suffered his second straight loss after allowing five runs in six innings against St. Louis on Monday.
