DENVER -

Tyler Chatwood pitched seven strong innings and hit a two-run double to help the Rockies break out offensively, leading Colorado to an 8-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.

Todd Helton and Nolan Arenado each had two hits and an RBI for the Rockies, who had scored an NL-low 58 runs in their 20 previous games in July.

Chatwood (7-3) allowed two runs on six hits and struck out the side in the first inning, finishing with a career-high 11 strikeouts on the night. He is 4-1 with a 3.47 ERA in eight starts at Coors Field.

The Rockies' bats came alive against one of the Brewers' top pitchers in recent weeks, Wily Peralta (7-10), who entered 3-1 with an 0.87 ERA in his previous six starts.
