Brewers Take Season-Opening Series From Colorado

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jim Edmonds' leadoff single set up a two-run rally in the sixth inning that put Milwaukee ahead and Trevor Hoffman earned his 593rd career save as the Brewers held off the Colorado Rockies 5-4 on Wednesday.

Edmonds, a 39-year-old former All-Star who spent last season out of baseball, made his second start in right field for Milwaukee. He went 2 for 4 with a double and scored twice.

After losing the season opener, the Brewers took two of three from the Rockies.

Reliever Todd Coffey (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings after a rough start by Doug Davis.

Backup catcher Miguel Olivo homered for the Rockies. Carlos Gonzalez had two hits, keeping up his fast start to the season.
