Brewers top Rockies in extras 5-4

DENVER (AP) -- Casey McGehee hit an RBI single in the 10th inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers overcame three errors and three runners thrown out on the basepaths to beat the Colorado Rockies 5-4 Saturday night.

Ryan Braun led off the 10th with an opposite field double off Huston Street (2-4) and Prince Fielder was then intentionally walked. McGehee then lined his second single of the night into center to score Braun.

John Axford (7-1) pitched two scoreless innings in relief. Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy, who was thrown out at home and also had a throwing error, came back to make a key play in the ninth. He threw out Troy Tulowitzki at third base when the Rockies shortstop tried to advance on a pitch in the dirt.
