PHOENIX (AP) - Ryan Braun belted a three-run homer in the third inning, Hernan Iribarren hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th and the Colorado Rockies rallied for a 9-8 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday.
The Rockies went ahead with three runs in top of the ninth on a pair of sac flies and a base hit, but the Brewers came back to score twice in the bottom half on a single by Chris Dickerson and a double by George Kottaras. The Rockies then escaped a bases loaded jam with a double play.
Cole Garner led off the 10th with a double and advanced to third on a throwing error before scoring on Iribarren's deep fly to center.
Todd Helton hit a two-run double for Colorado in the fifth.
Left-hander Chris Narveson, who will start the Brewers' home opener against Atlanta on April 4, gave up a run on four hits, walked one and struck out two in 3 2-3 innings.
