Pitching knowing that your spot in the starting rotation might be hanging in the balance is pressure enough.

Doing so at Coors Field? That's a different matter entirely.

Yet that was the situation Marco Estrada found himself in Friday night. And, save for an early barrage by the Colorado Rockies helped by some shaky defense, he acquitted himself well as the Milwaukee Brewers won a barn burner, 13-10, in front of a crowd of 41,238.

Yes, Estrada surrendered another home run — No. 24 in 15 starts, easily the most in the major leagues — but it was one of six on the night in all to go along with a combined 35 hits in a game that hearkened back to the pre-humidor days of the 1990s.

"That’s unbelievable," said manager Ron Roenicke afterward of the offensive display put on by both teams. "I know the ball carries well here, but there were balls squared up all night long. It’s amazing how many balls were hit hard."

Jean Segura homered twice and Khris Davis once to power a 19-hit Milwaukee attack that scored in seven of nine innings in finishing with a new season high in runs.

Segura, Carlos Gomez, Aramis Ramirez, Scooter Gennett and Ryan Braun all had three hits, and Ramirez, Davis and Segura drove in three runs apiece as the Brewers rose to a season-high 15 games over .500 at 45-30.

All told Estrada went 5 2/3 innings, allowing 10 hits, seven runs (earned) and a walk to go along with seven strikeouts. He threw 101 pitches in all, but it was his refusal to cave in after that tough start that was impressive, and he was rewarded with a victory to improve to 6-4.

For a statistical oddity, Estrada became the ninth starting pitcher in Brewers history to allow seven or more earned runs and receive the win. The last was Ruben Quevedo, who did it on July 24, 2002 at Houston.

"I pitched way too good today for the line to be the way that it was," he said. "I really felt good, really confident. There’s a couple plays that, if we make them, we’re out of the inning. Unfortunately it didn’t go that way. The guys tried hard but stuff like that’s going to happen. You just have to forget about it and keep making your pitches and that’s what I did.

"I went out and battled. Obviously it’s not the line you want to see, but I still thought I threw the ball really well."

The offense came fast and furious in this one.

Milwaukee jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning against Christian Bergman, with Jonathan Lucroy doubling in Gennett for the first run and Ramirez doubling in Jonathan Lucroy and Gomez.

Colorado, which in its last game Wednesday was no-hit by the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw in Los Angeles, showed no signs of a hangover when it battled back for a pair of runs in the bottom half of the frame.

Justin Morneau drove in both with a bloop double to left that nearly culminated in Gomez and Davis colliding in an attempt to run down the ball.

A solo home run to left-center by Segura to lead off the second made Milwaukee's advantage 4-2, but it didn't last long as Colorado came storming back with four more runs. The big blow was a three-run homer into the second deck by Morneau that gave the Rockies their first lead at 6-4.

True to form, the Brewers bounced right back.

With one out, Ramirez hit a shot back up the middle that hit Bergman in the left wrist, knocking his glove off. Ramirez wound up with a single and the game was delayed a few minutes as Bergman was examined by the trainer.

He ultimately stayed in, and the Brewers quickly took advantage. Davis hit a two-run homer to left-center — his 13th, tying him for the team lead with Mark Reynolds — to tie it up at 6-6. After Lyle Overbay grounded out, Segura hit his second homer of the game to almost the exact same spot as his first. That put Milwaukee back in front, 7-6.
