More stuff after the break.
Tonight the Brewers will try to make history, by beating a pitcher named Esmil for the first time in the storied franchise's history. Esmil Rogers is making his second start for the Rockies after replacing injured Aaron Cook in their rotation. In total, Rogers has made three starts for Colorado this season. In two of those starts, Rogers failed to get to the 5th inning (he went 6.0 in the other start).
The Brewers have not played well in Colorado, as they have only won 2 of their last 14 matchups in Coors Field. The Brewers are 14-32 all-time in Coors, including a 1-3 mark this year.
The Brewers will counter by giving Esmil Narveson the ball on the bump tonight. Narveson, an Englewood Co. native hasn't made a start against the Rockies yet this year, but faced them twice in relief in April.
Narveson against the Rockies...
Esmil McGehee had his string of consecutive hits snapped at nine last night. McGehee is still working on a eight game hitting streak and trails only David Wright for RBIs by a third-baseman.
