Rockies defeat Brewers 5-1

The Rockies beat the Brewers 5-1 at Coors Field today.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Timely hitting and excellent starting pitching powered today's win over the Brewers.

The Rockies got the scoring started in the bottom of the second inning, when Nolan Arenado doubled and eventually scored after advancing on a groundout and a Michael McKenry sacrifice fly. The Rockies added to the lead in the fifth inning. After a Brandon Barnes walk, Charlie Blackmon hit one out to right field, making it a 3-0 game. The Rockies added two more runs in the seventh inning off of singles by Blackmon and Ben Paulsen.

Chad Bettis had a strong and efficient start. He threw 6.1 innings, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out five. Through six, Bettis's only blemish was a solo home run given up to Adam Lind. He got into trouble in the seventh though. After allowing a double and a walk, with runners on first and third with one out, Walt Weiss replaced Bettis with Tommy Kahnle. The inning ended after Kahnle got Jonathan Lucroy to ground into a 5-4-3 double play.

Kahn continued and pitched the eight before giving way to John Axford, who pitched the ninth inning in a non-save situation.
