The Milwaukee Brewers have been feasting on Colorado Rockie pitching for a week. After sweeping the Rockies in Denver last weekend, the Brewers opened a four game series at Miller Park Thursday night with a 7-4 victory. Rickie Weeks greeted the first pitch he saw for a home run to lead off the first. Aramis Ramirez would add a two run shot in the opening frame. Wily Peralta got into trouble in the 4th and surrendured a grand slam home run to Ryan Wheeler that put the visitors in front. An RBI single by Johnathan Lucroy and a Khris Davis sacrifice fly pushed the Brewers back into the lead in the 5th inning and Scooter Gennett capped the night with a pinch hit, two run home run in the bottom of the 8th. Peralta picked up his 9th win of the season, working six innings. Five of the 8 hits allowed came in the 4th. Francisco Rodriguez finished off the ninth for his league leading 26th save. The Brewers have hit the halfway mark of the season, 81 games, and have the best recod of anyone in the majors at 49-32. With the LA Dodgers beating St. Louis 1-0 Thursday night in Los Angeles, Milwaukee's lead is back to five and a half games in the NL Central. Kyle Lohse wil pitch game two of the series Friday night. Pre-game coverage begins at 6:35 PM on WTAQ.
