by Evan Fitzgerald


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ryan Braun broke out of a slump with a solo homer and two RBIs, helping the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Colorado Rockies 9-4 on Saturday night.

Braun, who will be honored by the Brewers on Sunday for winning the National League's Most Valuable Player award last season, hit his second homer of the season and an RBI triple while ending an 0-for-16 slide.

Alex Gonzalez hit a three-run homer and Jose Veras (2-0) pitched a perfect seventh inning to get the victory.

Troy Tulowitzki and Todd Helton homered for the Rockies.
