MILWAUKEE (AP) Ryan Braun hit two home runs and the Milwaukee Brewers tied a season high with their fourth straight win, beating the Colorado Rockies 7-1 Wednesday.

Braun hit a solo drive off Tyler Anderson in the fourth inning. He connected for his 24th homer, a two-run drive, off Chad Qualls during a four-run seventh.

The Brewers posted their first three-game sweep over Colorado at Miller Park since 2011.

Nolan Arenado hit his NL-leading 34th homer in the first. The Rockies went on to load the bases, but Zach Davies (10-6) escaped further trouble.

Davis struck out eight in six innings.

Anderson fanned a career-high 10 in five innings.
