Just two games in, and the Milwaukee Brewers' series with the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field has already become one of their most entertaining in recent memory.

Less than 24 hours after outlasting the Rockies in a marathon slugfest, the Brewers rode the momentum of one of the most bizarre baserunning plays you'll ever see to a 9-4 victory on Saturday afternoon.

Aramis Ramirez, Mark Reynolds and Jean Segura all came around to score after a wild pitch thrown by Colorado starter Christian Friedrich in the third inning, a sequence that took the wind out of the Rockies' sails and the air out of the crowd of 38,020.

"Maybe Little League or something," Reynolds said when asked if he'd ever seen the bases clear in that manner. "Actually, you know, I don't think I've even seen it in Little League. It was just a freak play."

It was the latest break the Brewers have received in what's already turned out to be a terrific road trip. Now 5-1 after taking three of four in Arizona, they'll try for the sweep of the Rockies on Sunday afternoon.

Milwaukee, which is a major-league best 26-15 on the road, didn't win its 26th road game until Aug. 23 last season. The Brewers are now a season-best 16 games over .500 at 46-30.

"We were attacking all game today," Segura said. "It's tough for them and good for us. It's tough competing against a team like (us), attacking every inning, every play. Running the bases, hitting home runs, taking the extra base, stealing some bases.

"It's hard to play against teams like that."

Wily Peralta (8-5) tied Kyle Lohse, Sunday's starter, for the team lead in victories with a solid 72/3-inning outing. He allowed eight hits, four runs (three earned) and walked one with two strikeouts in a 110-pitch outing.

Peralta has now won four straight starts, a new career high.

"Pretty happy, man," he said. "That's what you want to do every time out there, just pick up the win for the team. That's great."

There was clearly some lingering craziness left over from Friday's 13-10 Brewers win, because the first few innings might well have topped that barnburner.

Thanks to some poor defense on both sides, the Brewers took a 4-2 lead into that memorable third.

Jonathan Lucroy led off with a walk and with one out, Ramirez singled to put two on. After Davis flied out to center, Reynolds doubled to right to score Lucroy.

With first base open and Peralta on deck, the Rockies elected to walk Segura to load the bases. In theory, the correct move in that situation.

Peralta came to the plate and fell behind in the count, 1-2, before Friedrich uncorked a pitch that got past catcher Michael McKenry and went to the backstop. Ramirez scored, with McKenry overthrowing the covering Friedrich at home in an attempt to get the out.

The ball sailed to the other side of the plate, just in front of the Milwaukee dugout, allowing Reynolds to score. McKenry was charged with an error for that miscue.

Friedrich tracked the ball down with Segura rounding third. The Brewers' shortstop, reading the situation beautifully, then made a mad dash for home. McKenry, hands on his knees at home plate, was unaware Segura was coming down the line, so Friedrich had to make a diving attempt at a tag.
