Colorado Rocks Brewers in the Seventh

A promising outing from Braden Looper turned rough when he got into the 7th inning after pitching six scoreless frames. Looper allowed one run before he was relieved for Mark DeFelice (who was activated as Mike Burns was sent back to Nashville). DeFelice pitched to one batter and then made way for Todd Coffey, but Coffey wasn't able to hold the Brewers lead. Three runs would score that inning, Coffey would get the loss as the Brewers fell to Colorado 3-2.

The Brewers did get out to an early start in this one as J.J. Hardy plated Craig Counsell with a groundout RBI in the first. Mat Gamel would then hit his second home run of the second and first at Miller Park to give the Brewers the 2-0 lead, but that would conclude their scoring for the day (sidenote: I'm adding "Gammunition" to the bank of Gamel nicknames that already include Gamel-toe and Gamelot. Discuss).

And that was pretty much it, the Brewers only mustered up five hits and two of those came from Jason Kendall, so you knew something wasn't right tonight. As for Player of the Game, I could go with Gamel for the homerun, but I think I'm going to go with Braden Looper. He rebounded well tonight going six innings, giving up two runs and striking out seven. Definitely a quality start, just didn't get enough from the offense tonight.

Game two is Wednesday night at 7:05pm. Be there.
