Iannetta hits a walk-off home run in the 11th as Colorado tops Brewers

The Colorado Rockies got closer to a playoff spot by beating the Milwaukee Brewers in Denver last night, 7-5 in 11 innings.

Jason Kendall hit a three-run homer in the Brewers' half of the ninth to send the game to extra innings.

And Chris Iannetta belted a pinch-hit, two-run homer off David Weathers to end it.

Weathers screamed at an umpire before he walked off the field for not calling strike-three on a check-swing.

He took the loss and dropped his record to 4-6.

Matt Belisle got the win in relief. He's now 3-1.

Ryan Braun doubled twice, as Milwaukee was out-hit 10-8.

Corey Hart picked up his 500th career hit with a single.

Todd Helton singled, doubled, and drove in a pair of runs for the Rockies who now lead Atlanta by three games for the National League Wild Card with five games to play.

The Rockies also remain in contention for the NL West title, but just barely - trailing the L.A. Dodgers by 3.5 games.

The Brewers lost their 80th game of the season, and they need to win all five of their remaining contests to finish above .500 for the third straight year.

The Brewers and Rockies will play again tonight.

Right-hander Jeff Suppan faces Colorado right-hander Jason Hammel.
