MILWAUKEE - The Rockies scored six unanswered runs, four of them off of the Brewers bullpen, in an 8-4 win at Miller Park Tuesday.
Ryan Braun homered for the Brewers, while Marco Estrada had an RBI single. Estrada left with the game tied 4-4 after allowing a two run homer to Carlos Gonzalez.
After Brandon Kintzler threw a scoreless sixth, Michael Gonzalez came on and loaded the bases to start the seventh. Burke Badenhop came in to relieve Gonzalez, but three runs came across in the inning, and the Brewers bats went quiet in the final innings.
The three game opening series wraps up Wednesday evening at Miller Park. Wily Peralta will make his first start of the season for the Brewers.
