Brewers win 2nd straight on road, top Rockies, 4-3

DENVER (AP) - Shaun Marcum tossed five solid innings before leaving with a strained neck and the Milwaukee Brewers held on to win consecutive road games for the first time in six weeks with a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

Rickie Weeks, Casey McGehee and Nyjer Morgan had two hits each for Milwaukee. The Brewers last won back-to-back road games when they swept a four-game series in Florida June 3-6.

Jason Giambi had two hits, including a homer, and Seth Smith also had two hits for Colorado.

John Axford got his 25th save after his second straight nail-biting ninth inning.
