Milwaukee Brewers Fall to Colorado Rockies, Losing Streak Continues

The Milwaukee Brewers (38-32) lose to the Colorado Rockies (30-41), 6-5 in 10 Innings, tonight at Coors Field.

The Brewers have now lost five games in a row.

Corbin Burnes struggled early on in the game, but eventually settled in. Burnes went 5 1/3 innings, gave up eight hits and four runs and two walks, while striking out six.

Here’s how his outing looked to Statcast tonight:

Brent Suter relieved Burnes to finish off the sixth inning, but gave up the game tying run, which was charged to Burnes.

Milwaukee had a 4-1 lead going into the bottom of the fifth, but Colorado scored in three straight innings to take a 5-4 lead.

The Brewers quickly tied the game in the Top of the Ninth when Omar Narvaez led the inning off with a double before Willy Adames doubled him home the very next pitch.

But the Brewers continue to not get clutch hits with runners in scoring position. Milwaukee had the bags loaded with one out in the ninth with the game tied 5-5, only to not score any more runs to take the lead.

Then in the Top of the 10th, with Kolten Wong leading the inning off at second base with the new extra inning rules, Milwaukee failed to even move him to third base, let alone score him.

Then Rockies won it in the Bottom of the 10th on a single by C.J. Cron.

This Brewers offense has been very frustrating to watch.

Up Next:

The Brewers and Rockies will meet again at Coors Field tomorrow night. First pitch is set for 8:10 PM (Central Time).

Adrian Houser (4-5, 3.62 ERA) will start for Milwaukee.

Austin Gomber (6-5, 3.54 ERA) will start for Colorado.
