DENVER, CO (WHBL) - The Colorado Rockies won their first home series in two and a halfmonths, after beating the Milwaukee Brewers 8-6 Tuesday night in Denver. Carlos Gonzalez had four hits and two R-B-I’s, and Eric Young Junior gave Colorado an 8-2 lead with a two-run homer in the sixth inning. Milwaukee scored three times in the ninth, but it wasn’t enough as the Crew dropped to 1-13 on the road since the All-Star break. Martin Maldonado hit a solo homer and drove in a pair for the Brewers, and Norichika Aoki had three singles in five trips. Randy Wolf gave up six runs on 10 hits in five innings. He fell to 3-9 on the year. Wolf has not had a win since July 17th, and he’s only had one victory in his last 19 starts. Tyler Chatwood won his second straight game for Colorado, holding the Brewers to two runs on four hits in six innings with no walks and three strikeouts. Chatwood also got his first big league hit with a double. Young went 3-for-5 and fell a triple short of the cycle for the Rockies, who have the National League’s second-worst winning percentage at .377. The Brewers fell to 11 games below .500. They’ll try to salvage a win this afternoon, when they close out the Denver series. Right-hander Mark Rogers will return from a paternity leave to start for the Crew. Guillermo Moscoco will be called up from Triple-“A” to start for Colorado. Coverage on WHBL begins at 1:35.
