DENVER (AP) - Aramis Ramirez homered and drove in two runs, and the Milwaukee Brewers continued their road dominance with a 6-5 win over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

Milwaukee swept the Rockies to finish 6-1 on a road trip that started in Arizona. The Brewers’ 27-15 record and .643 winning percentage away from home is the best in the majors. Oakland (.622) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (.615) are the only other teams close to matching Milwaukee’s success.

Wilin Rosario homered among his four hits and had three RBIs for Colorado, which has lost six straight and fell to 6-14 in June.

Brewers starter Kyle Lohse (9-2), who allowed three runs on seven hits in five innings to win consecutive starts for the first time in a month.

Rockies rookie right-hander Tyler Matzek (1-2) was roughed up in the second before setting down 11 straight.
