DENVER, CO (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers completed their first sweep at Colorado in ten years, with a 6-5 victory over the Rockies on Sunday. It was Ron Roenicke's 300th win as a Major League manager, all with Milwaukee in the past four seasons. The Brewers' record is now 47-30 - the second best in Major League Baseball - trailing Oakland by a half-game. The Crew also remains five-and-a-half games ahead of second-place Saint Louis in the National League Central Division. Colorado's Corey Dickerson tripled to lead off the ninth inning, but he fell after rounding third base on a throwing miscue and was tagged out. Wilin Rosario then homered with what could have been the tying run, but wasn't. All that came off Francisco Rodriguez, who still managed to get his Major League-leading 25th save. Kyle Lohse got the win, despite giving up three runs in five innings. He's 9-3 overall, and 6-1 on the road. Tyler Matzek took the loss in his third big league start, giving up five runs in five-and-a-third frames. He's now 1-2. Lyle Overbay hit his 150th career homer. Aramis Ramirez belted a two-run shot which also scored Carlos Gomez, who continued his Major League-leading on-base streak at 35 games. Rosario fell a triple short of the cycle for Colorado, which has now lost six straight. The Brewers completed a 6-1 road trip, and will host N-L-East-leading Washington tonight. Right-hander Matt Garza faces Nationals' southpaw Gio Gonzalez. Pregame coverage on WHBL starts at 6:35.
