Braun's clutch hit helps Brewers sweep Rockies

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Ryan Braun hit a two-run triple off Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez and scored on a throwing error, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-1 win and a three-game sweep over Colorado on Sunday.

Jimenez (0-4) threw the seventh complete game of his career and allowed only two hits, but struggled to find the strike zone with five walks and a hit batter.

He also received little support from the rest of the Rockies' sputtering offense.

Randy Wolf (4-4) pitched around trouble for seven innings and struggled at times with his command, but got key double plays in the fourth and fifth innings before settling down.

Braun scored in the third after center fielder Dexter Fowler tried to make a diving catch, then compounded the problem by committing a throwing error.
