Rockies score 3 on 2-error play, beat Brewers 10-4
Braun homers, doubles in loss
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Colorado scored three runs in a wild fifth-inning sequence featuring two Milwaukee errors, and the Rockies avoided a season sweep to the Brewers with a 10-4 win Sunday.
Wilin Rosario took advantage of the gaffes with runners on first and second. His shot to third was booted by normally sure-handed third baseman Aramis Ramirez.
One run had already scored when the ball squirted into foul territory before shortstop Jeff Bianchi threw home high and offline trying to get Corey Dickerson. Catcher Jonathan Lucroy then threw errantly attempting to get Rosario at third and Rosario hustled home safely for a six-run lead.
Jorge De La Rosa (8-6) got the win despite allowing three wild pitches and hitting one batter. Milwaukee’s Yovani Gallardo (5-5) was tagged for 10 hits in five innings.
