Brewers rally late to beat the Rockies 5-4 in 10 innings

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jonathan Lucroy hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 5-4 victory over Colorado on Monday, ruining the first game for new Rockies manager Walt Weiss.

Rickie Weeks sparked the winning rally when he stole second after he was hit by a pitch with one out. Adam Ottavino (0-1) then issued an intentional walk to Ryan Braun and lost Aramis Ramirez to another walk before Lucroy ended the game with a fly ball to center field.

A big "Luuuuuuc" thundered down from the Miller Park crowd of 45,781 as Weeks came home with the winning run and Lucroy was mobbed by his jubilant teammates.

Ramirez also had a two-run double in Milwaukee's three-run eighth inning as the Brewers won on opening day for the first time since 2008.
