Despite scoring three runs in the ninth inning that helped the Milwaukee Brewers tie Sunday’s game 4-4, Nolan Arenado’s single home run in the eleventh inning gave the Colorado Rockies a 5-4 win over the Brewers. Miscues by Rockies reliever Adam Ottavino and catcher Tom Murphy almost put victory in the Brewers hands. After Mike Moustakas hit his first Brewers home run, Ryan Braun reached on catcher’s interference with one out. Erik Kratz struck out swinging with two outs but reached because the pitch got past Murphy. After Orlando Arcia’s RBI double scored Braun, Kratz scored and tied the game on a wild pitch. But Arenado’s solo home put it away for Colorado. The Brewers are now one game behind the NL Central Division-leading Chicago Cubs.
