Rockies tie game in 9th, but Brewers prevail in extras

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Jonathan Lucroy hit a game-winning sacrifice fly to center field in the 10th inning as Milwaukee edged the Colorado Rockies, 5-4, on Monday at Miller Park in both teams' season opener.

Lucroy finished 0-for-4, but his bases-loaded sac fly in the 10th proved to be the difference-maker for the Brewers, who snapped a four-game losing streak on Opening Day.

Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-4 and hit a two-out, two-run double in eighth inning to put Milwaukee ahead 4-3 and Rickie Weeks added two hits and two runs scored in the victory. Norichika Aoki added a solo homer.

Troy Tulowitzki hit a two-run homer and Carlos Gonzalez added a solo shot for the Rockies, who looked to kick off the Walt Weiss era in promising fashion after leading 3-1 in the eighth with two outs before the Brewers rallied. Dexter Fowler hit a clutch game-tying solo homer in the ninth inning with two outs, though the Rockies couldn't secure the victory.

Colorado finished a mere 64-98 last season, good for the worst winning percentage in franchise history. Weiss replaced Jim Tracy.
