Recap: Colorado vs. Milwaukee

Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Charlie Blackmon hit a two-run homer and drove in three runs, while Chad Bettis tossed 6 1/3 solid innings in the Colorado Rockies' 5-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.

 

Bettis (3-2) allowed one run on five hits with five strikeouts and two walks for the Rockies, who snapped a five-game losing streak.

 

"He had it all working, but the command was real good," Colorado manager Walt Weiss said about Bettis.

 

Milwaukee starter Kyle Lohse (3-9) gave up three runs on four hits while striking out five over six innings. The right-hander fell to 0-5 since his last win, May 15 at New York's Citi Field.

 

Brewers manager Craig Counsell was still pleased with Lohse's performance.

 

"I thought Kyle pitched great, I really did," Counsell said.

 

The Rockies took a 1-0 lead in the second. Nolan Arenado doubled, moved to third when Wilin Rosario grounded out and scored on Michael McKenry's sacrifice fly.

 

Blackmon's two-run homer in the fifth made it 3-0. Brandon Barnes walked and crossed the plate on Blackmon's two-out blast to right.

 

Adam Lind hit a solo homer in the sixth to put Milwaukee on the board.

 

The Brewers failed to score after putting men on the corners in the seventh. Hernan Perez doubled and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Martin Maldonado then worked a one-out walk, chasing Bettis from the game. Tommy Kahnle got pinch-hitter Jonathan Lucroy to ground into a double play.

 

Colorado tacked on two runs against Michael Blazek in the bottom half. McKenry walked, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and raced home on Ben Paulsen's single to center. Blackmon followed with an RBI single to right.

 

The Brewers went 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position and stranded five ... Lohse fell to 6-5 lifetime against the Rockies.
