Batting – 2B: Weeks (23). HR: Hart (12); Weeks (18). RBI: Hart 2 (29); Morgan (20); Kotsay (19); Kottaras (9); Weeks 2 (41).

K-Rod’s first appearance as a Brewer netted him a victory as Milwaukee came off the deck twice to defeat the Rockies at Coors Field Saturday night. Rickie Weeks, batting in his new spot in the lineup, delivered a clutch 2-run shot to deep center off of Colorado closer Huston Street in the top of the ninth to give the Crew a much needed road win. Hart, who swapped spots in the batting order with Weeks, also went yard to back starter Zack Greinke’s quality start. John Axford locked the door in the ninth, preserving the W for his fellow closer. Ryan Braun left the game in the seventh with tightness in his hamstring and is considered day-to-day. The Brewers improve to 50-45 and send Shaun Marcum to the hill tomorrow looking to leave Denver with a series split.
