Rockies beat Brewers 8-7 in wild game at Coors

DENVER (AP) - What started as another low-scoring affair for two scuffling offenses turned into a wild slugfest with Seth Smith leading the Colorado Rockies to an 8-7 win over the Milwaukee
Brewers on Saturday night.

The Rockies were down by three entering the seventh but scored seven times over the next two innings to take an 8-4 lead into the ninth that Corey Hart trimmed to one with a single swing, his 18th homer coming off Manny Corpas with two outs.

Left-hander Franklin Morales was brought in to face Prince Fielder, who walked on four pitches. So, in came right-hander Rafael Betancourt to face Ryan Braun, who doubled to put runners at
second and third for Casey McGehee, who was intentionally walked.

Betancourt then retired Jonathan Lucroy on a liner to right to end the game.
