DENVER, CO (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers ended their road trip Wednesday with yet another loss, as the Colorado Rockies came from behind in the ninth inning to beat the Crew 7-6 in Denver. Jim Henderson gave up two singles before Tyler Colvin hit a two-run walk-off double down the right field line. It was the Milwaukee bullpen’s 23rd blown save of the year, and the loss dropped Henderson’s record to 0-2. Mark Rogers, back from paternity leave after his wife had a baby daughter on Monday, gave up four runs in the first two innings – but the Brewers took the lead by scoring five times in the fifth. Each team scored once in the sixth and seventh before the Brewers took a one-run lead into the final frame, which they couldn’t hold. Nyjer Morgan drove in three runs for Milwaukee, as he singled twice in four trips. Rickie Weeks went 3 for 5 with a double and an R-B-I. Corey Hart doubled, and he moved into second-place in the National League with 53 extra-base hits this season. Aramis Ramirez leads the N-L with 56. Rogers gave up five runs in six innings. Will Harris got the win by throwing two scoreless innings of relief. Chris Nelson went 2 for 4 with three R-B-I’s for Colorado, which won three straight at home for the first time since June first. Milwaukee dropped to 1-14 on the road since the All-Star break, as they dropped 5 of 6 games on the just-comleted road trip. The Brewers will open a four-game home series against Philadelphia tonight. Right-hander Marco Estrada goes up against Phillies’ left-hander Cliff Lee.
