Recap: Colorado vs. Milwaukee

Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Michael Cuddyer drove in the tying run in the eighth inning and scored on Nolan Arenado's base hit as the Colorado Rockies rallied for a 6-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers in the rubber match of the three-game series.

The Rockies earned a split of their 10-game homestand by belting four solo homers and getting a pair of runs off John Axford (4-4) after blowing a 4-3 lead in the eighth inning.

Troy Tulowitzki, Corey Dickerson and Cuddyer each homered off Brewers starter Donovan Hand, and Dexter Fowler took Michael Gonzalez just over wall in right- center to break a 3-3 tie with two outs in the seventh.

"We were able to come up in big situations, and come through in those situations. We had four solo home runs and at the end we came through with guys in scoring position," said Cuddyer.

Jhoulys Chacin was in line for the victory after allowing three runs on eight hits over seven quality innings, but Matt Belisle (5-5) gave up a one-out double to Carlos Gomez and hung a 2-2 slider that Yuniesky Betancourt hammered over the wall in left-center for his 11th home run of the season.

Colorado answered in its half of the eighth, as Tulowitzki led off with a double and scored on Cuddyer's two-bagger down the first-base line.

Cuddyer moved to third on a wild pitch, Arenado singled through the middle to push across the go-ahead run, and Rex Brothers tossed a scoreless ninth to pick up his seventh save.

Jeff Bianchi went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI while Norichika Aoki added a solo homer for the Brewers, who have dropped five of their last seven.

Hand, in his fifth career start, served up a home run to Tulowitzki in the first inning and was cruising before getting tagged for two more solo blasts in the sixth.

Dickerson led off the inning with his first career homer and Cuddyer cleared the wall in right-center to even the game at 3-3.

Bianchi's bases-loaded hit off Chacin's glove in the first inning knocked in Gomez, Aoki sent one into the bullpen beyond the right-field wall in the third and Bianchi tacked on an RBI single in the fourth.

"Sometimes you just face some guys that know what they're doing and you lose because of it, but I like the way we played," said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke.

Game Notes

Hand was charged with three runs on eight hits over six innings ... Dickerson homered in his 37th career at-bat ... Rockies first baseman Todd Helton recorded his first triple of the season in the fourth inning ... The Rockies won the season series, 4-2.
