MILWAUKEE -- While the Brewers booted Wilin Rosarios liner and made poor throws all over the field, the Colorado Rockies just kept running. Trevor Plouffe Jersey . Two errors later, Rosario was right back where he started -- though it took him a couple seconds to get up while catching his breath following a slide into home plate. Colorado scored three runs during that wild fifth-inning sequence and pounded starter Yovani Gallardo to avoid a season sweep to the Brewers with a 10-4 victory Sunday. "Yeah, its a home run, thats a home run for Rosario," manager Walt Weiss said. "One of the turning points if not the turning point of the game." Rosario took advantage of the gaffes with runners on first and second. His shot to third was booted by normally sure-handed third baseman Aramis Ramirez. "No excuses. I should have made that play," Ramirez said. One run had already scored when the ball squirted into foul territory. Shortstop Jeff Bianchi then threw home high and offline trying to get Corey Dickerson. Good thing Dickerson actually didnt heed third-base coach Stu Coles advice to stay put. "But I kind of noticed (Bianchi) was pretty far away to be able to make the throw, so I took off and slid," Dickerson said. "Thats when I got the strawberry (on his left leg), so I really didnt pay attention after that. So I really didnt know what happened behind me." That would be the 220-pound Rosario chugging home safely for a six-run lead after catcher Jonathan Lucroy threw errantly attempting to get Rosario at third. Wearing dark sunglasses, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke watched calmly in the dugout with arms crossed what he later called the "meltdown." The Rockies pounced on a team that looked a little tired after wrapping up a stretch of 20 games in 20 days, though Roenicke wasnt sure if fatigue may have played a role in the field in the fifth. "You can have those plays any time," Roenicke said. "You get down when you see it, so its hard to bounce back after a play like that." Jorge De La Rosa (8-6) got the win despite allowing three wild pitches and hitting one batter. Gallardo (5-5) was tagged for 10 hits in five innings. The Rockies had jumped on Gallardo for a 5-0 lead through three innings -- quite an accomplishment after the right-hander had allowed just three in his previous four starts combined. Colorado snapped a six-game slide to Milwaukee in the clubs last meeting of the regular season. Ryan Braun slugged an opposite-field solo shot into the Rockies bullpen in right for his 11th homer of the year. Braun also doubled in the sixth and scored on one of two wild pitches by De La Rosa in the inning. "Those wild pitches I (made), that cost some runs, De La Rosa said. "But the most important thing, we win." Khris Davis RBI groundout later in the sixth made it 8-4 when Ramirez scored following a steal of third. Ramirez, 36, stole two bases in a game for the first time in his 17-year career. It could have been much closer if not for the Milwaukee miscues in the fifth that had the National Leagues best team resembling a Little League outfit. As for Colorado, maybe this victory will snap the team out of a June funk. The Rockies had lost four straight entering Sunday, as well as 11 of 12. De La Rosa allowed four hits, two walks and four runs in six innings. NOTES: Dickerson said he would be fine after leaving with a left hamstring cramp following a 1-1 count in the eighth after fouling off a pitch. ... The Rockies want 3B Nolan Arenado to get about 25 at-bats in a rehab assignment with Triple-A Colorado Springs before returning to the lineup. Arenado has been on the disabled list since May 24 after breaking his left middle finger on a head-first slide into second in Atlanta. He started the rehab assignment Saturday. ... Roenicke hoped to get OF Carlos Gomez (neck strain) and SS Jean Segura (left quad) back for the start of a two-day interleague series Tuesday at Toronto. RH Marco Estrada (7-4) is scheduled to get the start. ... LHP Yohan Flande (0-0) will make his second career start when Colorado opens a three-game series Monday in Washington. Matt Wieters Jersey . On Sunday, hell attempt to become the youngest driver to win a NASCAR Nationwide race on Iowas short track. The 20-year-old Blaney wont be the only kid pushing a podium finish. Oakland Athletics Santiago Casilla Jersey . On Wednesday night, they showed that stellar defence and a little small ball can get the job done too. With pinch-runner Kevin Pillar aboard after Dioner Navarro opened the bottom of the ninth with a single, Anthony Gose dropped down an excellent bunt along the first-base line.HALIFAX -- Milos Raonic will face Colombias Alejandro Gonzalez in Davis Cup play Friday as the hard-serving Canadian returns to the court following a fourth-round exit from the U.S. Open. Raonic, from Thornhill, Ont., will play in the second singles match of the day Friday after Vancouvers Vasek Pospisil opens the best-of-five tie against Santiago Giraldo. The winner of the tie, which will be played on indoor hard court at the Halifax Metro Centre, will advance to the elite World Group next season. Canada is looking to reclaim its World Group spot after a first-round loss to Japan earlier this year. After Fridays singles matches, Pospisil and Torontos Daniel Nestor will play Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah in doubles. On Sunday, Raonic will take on Giraldo while Pospisil will play Gonzalez, a last-minute substitute for the injured Alejandro Falla. Frank Dancevic of Niagara Falls, Ont., is Canadas spare. Raonic, ranked seventh in thee world, hasnt played since losing a marathon fourth-round U. Atlanta Braves Matt Kemp Jersey. .S. Open match to tournament runner-up Kei Nishikori of Japan. The Canadian said earlier this week that his body had recovered from the gruelling loss. "Now that the draw is done, we are ready for the weekend and feel confident about our team," Canadian captain Martin Larendeau said. "Though we know Colombia will be fighting hard to make history for their country, we feel we belong in the World Group and will do whatever it takes to stay there." At No. 8 in the world, Canada is seen as the favourite, though the 26th-ranked Colombians did win the last meeting between the two teams in 2010 and are looking for their first-ever World Group berth. Canada made Davis Cup history last year by making the semifinals in 16-team World Group. A loss to Colombia would relegate the Canadians to Americas Zone Group I for the first time since 2011. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
