Brewers Thankful Rockies Leaving Town After Another Loss


Again the Milwaukee Brewers had little offense until it was too late as the Colorado Rockies won by a score of 5-4 and completed the sweep of the Brewers. Just like most of the games in the series the Brewers could not get their offense going.  Last night the Brewers were held scoreless until the seventh inning when they got a run across on a sacrifice fly by Cory Hart to score McGehee. In the ninth inning the Brewers got a three run homer from Ryan Braun to make it close.

Yovani Gallardo only gave up two runs, but did not have great control and threw 105 pitches in just five innings of work which included four walks. It seems that right now Milwaukee Brewers pitching does well enough to get wins even when they do not pitch well, but the offense does nothing to help them out until it’s too late.

The best thing we can say about this series is it is over. Colorado is playing well and they got the wins by combining good pitching, and when they needed it timely hitting. The Brewers got some good pitching at times, but the hitting right now is not where it needs to be. Hopefully it will come around soon.
