Herrera homers, Brewers beat Rockies 5-3

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Elian Herrera hit a solo home run in the seventh inning off the glove of leaping right fielder Ryan Wheeler and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the mistake-prone Colorado Rockies 5-3 Thursday.
   The Brewers scored twice in the eighth with the help of four of Colorado's five errors.
   Herrera, a leading candidate to make the Brewers as a utility infielder, has four hits in seven at-bats this spring with three RBIs while playing well at shortstop.
   Mark Reynolds and Jean Segura added RBI singles for the Brewers.
   Wheeler had an RBI single while Tom Murphy and Kyle Parker had run-scoring doubles for the Rockies.
   Rockies manager Walt Weiss questioned a call on a stolen base by Milwaukee's Logan Shafer in the sixth. Shafer was ruled safe by second base umpire Jim Wolf and after a replay review of less than two minutes, the ruling on the field was upheld.
