win probability graph / box score

The first few innings of the game went as unexpected with multiple bursts of offense. The Brewers started the game with a Rickie Weeks double; he scored on Jean Segura's single. Two more runs would score in that inning. They scored a run on a Jean Segura single in the second and two runs on a Juan Francisco home run in the 3rd. Tom Gorzelanny was nearly flawless in the first five innings, giving up three hits, walking none, and striking out four.

Unfortunately during the sixth inning the clouds decided to burst instead, causing Gorzelanny to fall off his game, culminating in a 3-run homer by Wilin Rosario. Gorzelanny was quite irritated by the mound conditions, conditions only resolved after he gave up the home run. He was pulled in favor of Brandon Kintzler after the mound was fixed. The rest of the night proved to be all wet in terms of precipitation but not in terms of offense by either team. After the sixth, the only runs scored were on solo home runs by Lucroy and Tulowitzki (off of John Axford, really not so surprising considering conditions and fly ball tendencies.) The game was delayed at the top of the bottom of the 9th for an hour and forty-five minutes for obvious massive precipitation.

Jean Segura was hit by a pitch on a swing during the fourth inning. He finished his at-bat but had to leave the game after the fifth inning.

The Brewers finish up their time in Colorado tomorrow at 3:10. Donovan Hand will be starting for the Brewers and Jhoulys Chacin will start for the Rockies.
