Brewers 7, Rockies 4: Same stuff, different day

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Rockies played, and lost, their sixth game of the season against the Brewers as the wait for players to return from injury continues.

I'll be honest, I can't really say I can't muster up any emotion over the latest in this string of Rockies losses, probably because I had no expectation of them winning this game either before or during it. The Rockies did live up (or down) to my expectations, losing again, 7-4, to the Brewers.

Jhoulys Chacin's rough season continued as he allowed seven runs on 11 hits in 5 2/3 innings, walking one and striking out four. The Milwaukee onslaught against Chacin began early, as he allowed one-out singles to Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy before serving up a three-run home run to Carlos Gomez to give the Brewers an early 3-0 lead.

The Brewers tacked on three more in the fifth thanks to a two-run triple for Braun, who then scored on a Lucroy ground out to give Milwaukee a 6-0 lead.

The Rockies finally got on the board in the sixth against Brewers starter Matt Garza. Three straight singles from DJ LeMahieu, Chacin and Charlie Blackmon loaded the bases for Drew Stubbs, who blooped a single to center field, scoring LeMahieu. Chacin then scored on a sacrifice fly from Troy Tulowitzki, cutting the Rockies deficit to 6-2.

It was 7-2 when Wilin Rosario and Ryan Wheeler led off the top of the seventh with a single and a double and both came around to score on LeMahieu's single, cutting the Milwaukee lead to 7-4. The Rockies had Charlie Culberson at the plate as the tying run with two outs in the eighth, but Tulowitzki was cut down on a baffling double steal attempt, ending Colorado's last threat of the game.
