Huston Street earned his 11th save, as the Rockies have now won seven straight.
Prince Fielder had two doubles and an RBI for Milwaukee, which lost for the 14th time this season after taking a lead.
The Brewers have now lost three straight, but they still lead the National League Central by 1.5 games over St. Louis and Cincinnati.
