Herrera homers, Brewers beat Rockies 5-3
PHOENIX (AP) - Elian Herrera hit a solo home run in the seventh inning off the glove of leaping right fielder Ryan Wheeler and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the mistake-prone Colorado Rockies 5-3 Thursday.
The Brewers scored twice in the eighth with the help of four of Colorado's five errors.
Herrera, a leading candidate to make the Brewers as a utility infielder, has four hits in seven at-bats this spring with three RBIs while playing well at shortstop.
Mark Reynolds and Jean Segura added RBI singles for the Brewers.
Wheeler had an RBI single while Tom Murphy and Kyle Parker had run-scoring doubles for the Rockies.
Rockies manager Walt Weiss questioned a call on a stolen base by Milwaukee's Logan Shafer in the sixth. Shafer was ruled safe by second base umpire Jim Wolf and after a replay review of less than two minutes, the ruling on the field was upheld.

MILWAUKEE WAVE LAWSUIT
Milwaukee Wave, owner sued for overdue payment
MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee Wave professional indoor soccer team and its owner are being sued by a lender.
Thomas Phillips, of Caledonia, claims he loaned owner Sue Black $200,000 shortly after he was named CEO of the team last year. Phillips lawsuit claims Black agreed to make quarterly interest payments on the loan, but made only a single payment of $100,000 last August.
WISN-TV reports court documents say Black requested a short-term loan of $10,000 to make payroll in December, but has not made arrangements for repaying that loan. Black tells WISN she can't comment on the lawsuit and is focused on the playoffs. She did not immediately return a call to The Associated Press.
CARLOS MOLINA ARRESTED
IBF light middleweight champ Carlos Molina jailed
LAS VEGAS (AP) - IBF light middleweight champion Carlos Molina has been jailed in Las Vegas two days before a scheduled fight.
Molina is being held at the Clark County jail on a federal immigration hold and a warrant accusing him of failing to register as a sex offender seven years ago in Wisconsin.
Las Vegas police Officer Laura Meltzer said Thursday the 30-year-old Molina was arrested Tuesday on a 2007 warrant from Outagamie (out-ah-GAY'-mee) County, Wisconsin.
Molina made an appearance Thursday before a Las Vegas judge and tried to post $10,000 bail.
But Meltzer says his release was denied after Las Vegas police learned he was also sought by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Molina is scheduled to fight Jermall Charlo on Saturday.
