"I've been trying to make good pitches, but not good location, not throwing down," said Chacin, who was tagged for all seven runs on 11 hits in 5 2-3 innings. "My game is throw down, get ground balls, and I haven't done that this year. Especially my sinker."

The Brewers added three runs in the fifth to make it 6-0. Jean Segura singled to open, advanced on Garza's sacrifice bunt and moved to third on Scooter Gennett's infield single. Braun followed with a triple into the corner when right-fielder Charlie Blackmon missed on a diving attempt at the sinking liner. Braun scored on Lucroy's groundout.

Colorado got two runs in the sixth after loading the bases with three consecutive one-out singles. Stubbs' bloop single to shallow right drove in one run and Tulowitzki followed with a sacrifice fly.

The Brewers answered with a run in the bottom of the inning on Lyle Overbay's RBI single to increase the lead to 7-2.

The Rockies added two more in the seventh on a single by Rosario, a double by Wheeler and D.J. LeMahieu's two-run single.

"Eight out of those nine hits they got, I thought probably weren't hard enough but they're still hits," said Garza, signed to a $50 million, four-year deal, "Sometimes they fall in so you have to just keep making pitches. It's frustrating but we still came out with a 'W' so it is what it is. I'll take the soft hits over them barreling them up."

Weiss said it's not just his team that has had trouble with the Brewers, who improved to a season-best 19 games over .500 at 51-32.

"They've been good against everybody," Weiss said. "They've got the best record in the National League. They're doing everything well. All aspects of their game are rolling right now."

NOTES: The Brewers said Gomez is day to day. ... To eliminate the shadows between the mound and home plate during day games at Miller Park, the first-base half of the roof was closed, while the third-base side remained completely open. ... Jabari Parker, the first-round pick of the Milwaukee Bucks and the No. 2 overall pick in the recent NBA draft, threw out the first pitch, wearing a Brewers jersey with his name and No. 12 on the back. The 6-foot-8 right-hander snapped off a one-hopper to the plate.
