Rockies comeback for Opening Day victory against Brewers

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Bud Black won his debut as Colorado manager, and Greg Holland got a save in his first game with the Rockies.
 
Mark Reynolds homered, had three RBIs and scored the tying run in a two-run seventh following two defensive lapses by Milwaukee, and the Rockies beat the Brewers 7-5 in Monday's opener.
 
Tony Wolters scored from third with two outs in the seventh after Jett Bandy threw to second trying to catch Charlie Blackmon stealing. The ball short-hopped second baseman Jonathan Villar and trickled away on the infield dirt, allowing Wolters to go home.
 
Villar also bobbled a relay throw at second on what could have been an inning-ending double play on a sharp bouncer by Blackmon, allowing Reynolds to score from third for a 5-4 lead.
 
Carlos Estevez got the win.
