DENVER - The Milwaukee Brewers blew open a 1-1 game with five runs in the ninth, taking a 6-1 decision over Colorado.
Rickie Weeks and Corey Hart had the big hits -- a pair of two-run doubles. The Brewers did that damage against Rockies closer Manuel Corpas, who gave up all five runs and didn't get anybody out. Trevor Hoffman pitched a scoreless eighth inning to pick up his second win.
Both Brewer lefty Randy Wolf and Rockies starter Aaron Cook pitched seven innings, allowing three hits and one run. Corpas took the loss.
Relief pitcher Todd Coffey is back with the Brewers. The Brewers activated Coffey off the 15-day disabled list over the weekend, and sent pitcher Chris Smith to Nashville. Smith has the option of refusing to accept the assignment to Triple-A, but team officials say they think he'll take the trip to Nashville.
