DENVER, July 28 (UPI) -- Michael Cuddyer and Nelson Arenado each provided an eighth-inning RBI Sunday, rallying the Colorado Rockies over Milwaukee 6-5.

The Brewers had grabbed a 5-4 lead in the top of the eighth on a two-run homer by Yuniesky Betancourt, but the Rockies responded quickly in the next half-inning.

Troy Tulowitzki stroked a leadoff double against John Axford (4-4) and Cuddyer followed with another two-bagger to tie it up.

After Todd Helton flew out, Cuddyer advanced to third on a wild pitch and Arenado made Axford pay by lining a solid hit to center field for the decisive run.

Cuddyer, Tulowitzki, Dexter Fowler and Corey Dickerson each went 2-for-4 with a solo homer as Colorado took the rubber match of a three-game series.

Matt Belisle (5-5) was credited with the decision despite yielding Betancourt's homer and Rex Brothers tossed a 1-2-3 ninth for his seventh save.

Norichika Aoki also went deep and Jeff Bianchi supplied a pair of run-scoring singles for the Brewers.
