Shaw, Peralta lift Brewers to 8-2 win over Rockies
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Travis Shaw hit a grand slam during Milwaukee's six-run first inning, and the Brewers beat the Colorado Rockies 8-4 on Saturday night.
Milwaukee won for the fourth time in six games stayed one back of NL Central-leading Chicago, which held on for a 5-4 win over San Diego. Rookie Freddy Peralta pitched six effective innings in his second win over Colorado this season.
Trevor Story hit two two-run homers for the Rockies, who have dropped five of six. Tyler Anderson (6-4) was tagged for seven runs and seven hits in four innings.
Story's 23rd homer off Matt Albers caromed off the yellow padding on top of the wall in the ninth. A 50-second replay review confirmed the call.
The Rockies then loaded the bases with one out, but Joakim Soria struck out pinch-hitter Tom Murphy swinging and Josh Hader got Charlie Blackmon to pop out for his eighth save.
