Yonathan Daza , who had a three-run homer in the eighth, hit an RBI double in the Colorado 10th that tied it. After an intentional walk and a groundout, Grichuk homered to win it. The Brewers built a 6-1 lead behind seven strong innings from starter Brandon Woodruff but the Rockies tied the game in the eighth of Luis Perdomo and Peter Strzelecki . Alan Trejo , who had three hits, had an RBI single in the Rockies eighth that made it 6-2. Daza homered and Grichuk connected with two outs to make it 6-all.

A two-run double by Omar Narváez in the fourth to give the Brewers a 5-1 lead and Adames padded the lead with an RBI double in the seventh. Elehuris Montero hit a solo homer in the third inning for Colorado's lone run against Woodruff, who matched his longest outing of the season. He allowed just two hits and struck out five.
