Ramirez helps Brewers to 9-4 win over Rockies

DENVER (AP) -- Aramis Ramirez had three hits, including a solo homer, and Wily Peralta won his fourth straight start as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the error-prone Colorado Rockies 9-4 on Saturday.

Carlos Gomez extended his hitting streak to 17 games to help the Brewers improve to 5-1 on their seven-game trip.

Peralta (8-5) went 7 2-3 solid innings and allowed four runs, three earned. He gave up a two-run single to Justin Morneau in the first and then shut down the league's best offense until Corey Dickerson's two-run homer in the sixth.

Christian Friedrich (0-1) lasted six innings and surrendered nine runs, four earned, in his season debut. He was betrayed by his defense as the Rockies committed a season-high four errors.

Friedrich is the 11th starting pitcher the Rockies have used this season.
