Jason Hammel vs Braden Looper

Mostly cloudy. Game time temperature around 60.


Complete Coverage >

Braden Looper against Jason Hammel today, against the backdrop of the draft. The Rockies are coming off a four-game sweep of the Cardinals in St. Louis by a combined score of 33-9, but Hammel has been exceedingly hittable throughout his career, so I have high hopes.

The Brewers made a roster move before the game, activating Mark DiFelice from the bereavement list and optioning Mike Burns back to Nashville. I guess they like Chris Smith, though it would be nice if Macha was willing to use him.
