Milwaukee has had a brutal start to 2017 with two consecutive home losses and giving up a total of 13 runs to Colorado in the first two days. They lost the second game of the series by a 6-5 score. After the Rockies had poured it on in the third inning to give themselves a 4-1 lead, they answered back after the Brewers tacked on some runs to make it 6-3 after 4.5 innings. The Brewers cut the lead again to make it 6-5 after the sixth inning, but there was no more scoring after that as the bullpens pulled through.

The Rockies show offensive power again

Colorado followed up seven runs in the season opener with six runs in the second game of the four-game set.

Nobody scored a home run, but three different players scored two or more RBIs. Leadoff hitter Charlie Blackmon contributed with two hits and two RBIs. Left outfielder Gerardo Parra (.556 avg) had team highs of three hits and three RBIs on the night. Parra grounded out to end the first inning his first time up, but then he was able to double to center in the top of the third to reel in all three of his RBIs.

Rockies lefty starter Tyler Anderson gave up eight hits and five earned runs in 5.2 innings. While he did record eight strikeouts and only walked one player, he was a little sporadic in the effort. Luckily his offense was able to bail him out in the game.

Brewers can't complete comeback

Milwaukee could never get over the hump after giving up four runs in the third inning.

Right-handed starter Zach Davies struggled significantly giving up 11 hits and six earned runs in 5.1 innings of work. He also walked six different batters. Two more hits were given up by the bullpen, but they wouldn't surrender any more runs. Still, it was an effort that has to make the Brewers very concerned about their starting rotation early on.

In better news, left fielder Ryan Braun looked sharp getting two hits and connecting on his first home run of the season. Third baseman Travis Shaw also recorded two hits and brought two runs in.

The third game of a four-game set continues on Wednesday night. First pitch at Miller Park takes place at 8:10 PM Eastern time.
