SB Nation Coverage

For the ninth time in his last ten starts, Brewers starter Manny Parra failed to complete the 6th inning. Parra only walked two Rockies batters, but gave up 6 hits, and needed to throw 100 pitches to get through his 5+ innings of work. On the other side of the rubber, Rockies starter Ubaldo Jiminez pitched 8 innings, striking out 10 Brewers, but the Brewers worked him for 10 hits.

Rickie Weeks led the Brewers with four hits, including a single, a double and a triple. Ryan Braun also chipped in with 2 singles and a double, and Prince Fielder drove in 2 runs with a single.

Both Todd Coffey and Zach Braddock did a good job ending scoring threats from the Rockies, however Trevor Hoffman came into the game in the ninth with the score tied 5-5 and slammed the door on the Brewers, allowing a double, a walk and a walk-off single to Troy Tulowitzki, and handing the Rockies a 6-5 win in the rubber game of this series.
