Milwaukee Brewers beat Colorado Rockies, 9-5
DENVER (AP) — Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer and Taylor Jungmann threw six innings to help the Milwaukee Brewers snap a six-game losing streak with a 9-5 victory over the scuffling Colorado Rockies on Friday night.
Aramis Ramirez added a solo shot as the Brewers rediscovered the long ball after hitting only one homer in their losing streak. They had two off Jorge De La Rosa (4-3) in a three-run first inning.
Ben Paulsen finished a homer shy of the cycle for the Rockies, who have lost five straight.
Relying almost exclusively on his fastball, Jungmann (2-1) handcuffed Colorado’s potent offense before losing steam. The right-hander allowed four runs and eight hits.
