Brewers use 9th-inning surge to best Rockies

Rhys Hoskins was hit by a pitch with two outs and the bases loaded in the top of the ninth to drive in the winning run as the Milwaukee Brewers rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night in Denver.

Brice Turang came home when Hoskins was plunked. Milwaukee had tied the game earlier in the inning on Willy Adames’ sacrifice fly off Rockies reliever Nick Mears (1-4).

Christian Yelich had a double among his three hits, Adames went 2-for-3 with a run and an RBI and Jackson Chourio also had two hits and a run for the Brewers, who snapped a six-game losing streak at Coors Field with their major-league-leading 26th comeback win of the year.

Rob Zastryzny (1-0) picked up the win in relief, and Trevor Megill struck out two in a scoreless ninth to record his 18th save in 19 tries.

Brenton Doyle homered, doubled and drove in two runs and Elias Diaz also had two hits for Colorado, which had a two-game winning streak come to an end.

Milwaukee took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Adames led off with an infield single, advanced to second on a base hit by Garrett Mitchell and scored on a bloop single by Sal Frelick.

Colorado took a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the second, as Doyle opened the inning with his 10th homer of the season and Michael Toglia added a sacrifice fly.

The Brewers tied it, 2-2, in the seventh after Chourio led off with a single, advanced to second on a wild pitch and moved to third on a groundout. Turang then hit a fly ball to shallow right that Hunter Goodman lost in the twilight sky, leading to a run-scoring double.

The Rockies went up 3-2 in the bottom of the eighth thanks to an RBI double from Doyle.

Colorado starter Ryan Feltner set a franchise record with his 17th consecutive start of at least four innings with two walks or fewer, breaking a tie with Jeff Francis, who rattled off 16 such starts in a row from June 28, 2008-June 25, 2010.

Feltner gave up one run on six hits in five innings. He walked two and fanned three.

Brewers starter Dallas Keuchel allowed two runs and four hits in 5 1/3 innings, walking two and striking out five.
