Brew crew sweep Rockies

Open series against Pirates tonight

Your Milwaukee Brewers completed a sweep of the Colorado Rockies with an exclamatory 7-1 thumping led by Ryan Braun’s two home runs.  The win moves the Brewers to 36-29 at home (and nearly the opposite on the road).

“Ugly start,” Braun said referring to a dropped  fly ball at the warning track in the second inning for an error, “so I was happy to have a good finish.”

“We had some hits over the course of the series, but had a hard time putting together that big inning, putting a crooked number up there,” Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. “With the exception of Nolan’s three-run homer [on Tuesday], we weren’t able to bunch the hits together and put together a big inning.”

The Brewers open a three game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates tonight and will send Willie Peralta (5-9, 6.00 ERA) to the mound while the Pirates will start Chad Kuhl (3-1, 3.62 ERA).

Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to grab yours today and help cheer on your Milwaukee Brewers!
