DENVER (AP) -Garrett Atkins matched his career high with six RBIs and had four of Colorado's 23 hits in a 19-4 rout Wednesday as the Rockies completed a three-game sweep of slumping Milwaukee.
Colorado had its biggest offensive day since a 20-1 victory over San Diego on Sept. 20, 2005, when the Rockies also had 23 hits.
Jeff Francis (13-5) improved to 8-0 in his last 11 starts. He allowed three runs and six hits in five innings.
Atkins was 4-for-4 with two doubles, and Troy Tulowitzki went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a home run and three RBIs. Matt Holliday tripled and drove in two runs, and Brad Hawpe hit a two-run homer for the Rockies.
Prince Fielder hit his league-leading 34th homer for the Brewers, who have lost four straight and 14 of 20.
Yovani Gallardo (4-2) was rocked for a season-high 11 runs and 12 hits in 2 2-3 innings.
