The Colorado Rockies snapped a three-game losing streak with a 4-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night at Coors Field. Rockies pitching, led by starter Kyle Freeland, limited the Brewers to just five hits, four of which were singles, in the contest after allowing 11 runs the previous night. The Rockies offense was led by Trevor Story, who hit a pair of home runs, with Nolan Arenado and Chris Iannetta also contributing multi-hit games.
Never Ending Story
Rockies shortstop Trevor Story continued his hot hitting on the current homestand, going 3-for-4 with a double and a pair of home runs, his ninth and 10th of the season, driving in all four Rockies runs. Story is now 7-for-17 on the homestand with all seven hits going for extra bases, two of them doubles, two triples and three home runs. Story is now hitting .239/.333/.542 on the season, with his .875 OPS complemented by 32 RBIs, good for third in the National League.
Money for Nothing, Outs for Free
Kyle Freeland continued his strong 2018 season, pitching 6 1⁄3 scoreless innings, allowing four hits and four walks with six strikeouts. He lowered his season ERA to 3.42, which would be the fifth-best mark for a season in Rockies history. Freeland has been especially dominant in his last four starts, posting a 1.65 ERA in 27 1⁄3 innings, allowing 17 hits and eight walks with 27 strikeouts in that span.
With the win, the Rockies moved to 22-18 and within 2 1⁄2 games of Arizona for first place in the NL West, they will look to get to five games over .500 tomorrow with Jon Gray on the mound against a to be determined Brewers starter.
