Know Your Foe #38: Brewers look to play spoiler vs. Rockies in Denver

New, 24 comments

MILWAUKEE BREWERS (53-62, 3rd in NL Central)

2010 Record vs. Rockies: 3-3

Last Series vs. Rockies: June 18-20, 2010 @ Coors Field (L 1-2)

Recent series results: W 3-0 vs. Houston, L 1-3 vs. Arizona

The Crew had to win yesterday's game against the D-Backs to avoid a sweep, and they were able to do just that behind a strong offensive performance by Casey McGehee, who went 4-for-4 with a double and a home run. Randy Wolf got the win despite allowing four runs - all in one inning - on seven hits and four walks. He struck out eight, but it WAS against the D-Backs...

In the previous games, Arizona outscored the Brewers 17-7 - including an 8-2 victory which saw Milwaukee starter David Bush allow four consecutive homers to D-Backs hitters in the fourth inning. Amongst the guys that will see action against Colorado, Chris Narveson probably had the best start. He allowed three runs on six hits in six innings. Manny Parra also started a game in the series and did a nice job of limiting Arizona to one run, but he also walked six batters in 5.1 frames.

Offensively, Milwaukee's biggest threat looks like it's going to be McGehee, who is now 8-for-8 with a couple of homers in his last two ballgames.

Friday-Sunday: 3-game series @ Coors Field
