Rockies beat Brewers for ninth straight time at home

7/27/2003

DENVER (AP) -- Jason Jennings pitched six strong innings and hit
a two-run single as the Colorado Rockies beat Milwaukee 6-1 Sunday
to complete its third straight home sweep of the Brewers.

Jennings (10-8) allowed one run, five hits and four walks, giving Colorado its ninth consecutive victory over Milwaukee at Coors Field.

Milwaukee's Wayne Franklin (7-7) allowed four runs, four hits
and six walks in six innings, and struck out five.

Charles Johnson had two RBI for the Rockies, and Geoff Jenkins
had three hits for the Brewers.

Jennings' two-run single put Colorado ahead in the second, and
Jennings walked the bases loaded in the third before retiring Brady
Clark on an inning-ending flyout.

Jenkins hit an RBI single in the fifth that cut the lead in
half, but Colorado made it 4-1 in the bottom half on Preston
Wilson's RBI double and a bases-loaded walk to Johnson by Franklin
-- his third straight walk of the inning.

Jay Payton and Johnson had RBI doubles off Brooks Kieschnick in
the seventh.

Game notes
Wilson's double in the fifth was his 35th of the season,
tying his career high, set in 2000. ... Johnson's bases-loaded walk
produced his 500th career RBI. ... Jennings had lost his previous
two starts, and Franklin had won his previous two starts.
