MILWAUKEE - Colorado scored three runs in a wild fifth-inning sequence featuring two Milwaukee errors, and the Rockies avoided a season sweep to the Brewers with a 10-4 win Sunday.
Wilin Rosario took advantage of the gaffes with runners on first and second. His shot to third was booted by normally sure-handed third baseman Aramis Ramirez.
One run had already scored when the ball squirted into foul territory before shortstop Jeff Bianchi threw home high and offline trying to get Corey Dickerson. Catcher Jonathan Lucroy then threw errantly attempting to get Rosario at third and Rosario hustled home safely for a six-run lead.
Jorge De La Rosa (8-6) got the win despite allowing three wild pitches and hitting one batter. Milwaukee's Yovani Gallardo (5-5) was tagged for 10 hits in five innings.
MERRILL - The Merrill Police Department need helping finding anyone involved in several acts of vandalism that happened earlier this week.
Brian Schwartz has lived in his home on River Street in Merrill for almost 10 years. His garage, his neighbor's garage, and the public service building down the street were vandalized. Schwartz reported the vandalism to police on Monday.
Schwartz says this is the first time anyone has vandalized his property.
CRANDON - Terri Burl wanted to ask more questions than make comments during Congressman Sean Duffy's town hall in Crandon on Thursday.
"Everybody's in the state of the unknown right now," Burl said.
Burl, a Republican, was thinking of her 26-year-old son in Oshkosh as she asked Duffy (R-Wausau) about health care concerns. She worries about tax penalties for her uninsured son and the GOP's lack of solid ideas to replace the Affordable Care Act.
MADISON - The Senate judiciary committee is set to vote on four bills that would impose tougher drunken driving penalties.
The Republican proposals would create a five-year minimum prison sentence for homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle and raise the minimum incarceration period for fifth and sixth offenses from six months to 18 months.
