MILWAUKEE (AP) - Rickie Weeks had three hits, including a leadoff home run, and Wily Peralta won his fifth consecutive start as the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Colorado Rockies 7-4 Thursday night.

Weeks homered on the first pitch from Colorado starter Christian Friedrich (0-2). Aramis Ramirez followed later in the inning with a two-run shot.

Peralta (9-5) allowed three straight singles in the fourth. Ryan Wheeler then hit a grand slam, giving the Rockies a 4-3 lead.

In the fifth, Weeks doubled and scored on Jonathan Lucroy's single. A sacrifice fly by Khris Davis put Milwaukee ahead 5-4.
