Rockies Win 9th

Rockies Win 9th

The Rockies won a tight matchup against the Brewers on Wednesday. The game was won 7-6 at home thanks to some late game heroics with Colorado down a run in the 9th. They were able to string together some hits and got a game winning hit by Colvin to earn their 44th victory of the season. They are still just a measly 44-71 on the season and improve to just 23-37 at home. Certainly steps need to be taken to get back into winning ways in Colorado. Much must be done in the offseason to make this happen.

Colorado got 11 hits in all on Wednesday including one homerun. Young Jr. hit his 4th of the year. The team flew out of the gates to an early 3-0 lead in the first, and was up 4-0 after 4 innings. Milwaukee then came back and overtook the lead in the 5th when they came out and scored 5 runs. The Brewers were up a run in the bottom of the 9th before Colvin got the game winning hit to walk-off with a win.

The Brewers fought hard to get back into the game with the huge 5th inning, but quickly showed they are just too inconsistent. The team did get 10 hits in the game and got runs across, but pitching was suspect and cost them the game. The loss was credited to pitcher Henderson. Henderson is now 0-2 overall this year. The Brewers, as a team, are 52-64 overall with a 19-38 away record.
