Nolan Arenado, David Dahl and Raimel Tapia homered to lead the Colorado Rockies over Freddy Peralta and the Colorado Rockies 11-6 Thursday for a four-game split.
Arenado had three hits, including his ninth home run this season. Dahl finished a triple short of the cycle for the Rockies, who outscored the Brewers 22-10 in the final two games of the series. Colorado tied season highs for runs and hits (14).
Colorado has won 12 of 17 following a 3-12 start. The Rockies scored 46 runs in their first 16 games and 101 in their last 16.
Since starting the season 3-12, the Rockies have won 12 of 17.
Jon Gray (3-3) allowed seven runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings with nine strikeouts.
Peralta (1-1) made his first appearance since April 15 following a stint on the injured list caused by a sore right shoulder. He fell behind 7-0 by the second inning and gave up nine runs -- six earned -- eight hits and three walks in four innings. His short outing put more pressure on a bullpen taxed by nine innings Wednesday after starter Chase Anderson was scratched because a callus ripped on his right middle finger.
Ryan Braun homered for Milwaukee.
Mark Reynolds hit a three-run double in a four-run first that included Tapia's RBI single. Dahl hit an RBI single in the second and Arenado followed with a two-run homer for a 7-0 lead.
Milwaukee closed in the third when Lorenzo Cain hit an RBI double and scored on Mike Moustakas' single.
