Rockies past Brewers in 9th for 7-6 win

DENVER (AP) -- Tyler Colvin hit a two-run double in the ninth inning and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-6 on Wednesday.
Wilin Rosario started the rally with a one-out pinch-hit single to center off reliever Jim Henderson (0-2).
Eric Young Jr., who homered earlier in the game, also singled to put runners at the corners.
Colvin followed with a double down the first base line, scoring the speedy Young from first and giving the Rockies their first home sweep since May 28-31.
Will Harris (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings to pick up his first major league win. Chris Nelson had two hits and drove in three runs and Carlos Gonzalez had two hits for the Rockies.
Rickie Weeks had three hits and Nyjer Morgan had two hits and three RBIs for the Brewers, who have lost five of six.
