The Milwaukee Brewers survived a rollercoaster finish on opening day by beating the Colorado Rockies 5-4 in 10 innings before nearly 46,000 fans at Miller Park, the fifth largest crowd to fill the stadium. Jonathan Lucroy's bases loaded sacrifice fly scored Rickie Weeks with the game winning run. Yovani Gallardo made his 4th straight opening day start but is still looking for his first opening day win. Gallardo constantly pitched in trouble, giving up 10 hits, 8 of them singles, over five innings. The other two hits were homers, a two run shot by Troy Tulowitzki and a solo bomb from Carlos Gonzalez. Gallardo left the game trailing only 3-1 thanks a third inning solo home run from Norichika Aoki. The Brewer bats finall came alive in the 8th inning, plating three runs for the lead, the big blow as a two run double from Aramis Ramirez. John Axford came on in the 9th and struck out the first two batters he faced but on the first pitch, Dexter Flower crushed a ball over the right field wall to tie the game at 4. In the bottom of the tenth, the Brewers loaded the bases without a hit and Lucroy lifted a fly ball to center for the game winning RBI. It was the Brewers first opening day win in five years and they'll try to make it two in a row Tuesday night, sending Marco Estrada to the mound against former Brewer Jorge DelaRosa.
