Win Expectancy Graph

Another day, another opposing pitcher dominating the Brewers.

Things started off well enough. After Shaun Marcum tossed a scoreless inning, Corey Hart led off the Brewers half with a triple, and was immediately driven in by Nyjer Morgan's groundout to give the Brewers an early 1-0 lead.

The Crew enjoyed that lead for the next inning before the Rockies fired back. Thomas Field led off the top of the third inning with a single. Field would eventually be out at third on a Dexter Fowler fielders choice, but Fowler was allowed to make it to second because of a poorly executed run-down. The next batter, Mark Ellis, singled to drive in Fowler and tie the game. Carlos Gonzalez followed that with a home run to give the Rockies a 3-1 lead.  The Rockies would add one more in the fourth on a Wilin Rosario solo homer.

The Rockies would get two more in the fifth on a Gonzalez sac fly and a Jason Giambi RBI double. The Crew's final run was the result of a wild pitch with scored Morgan. After that the Crew really couldn't get anything going. Their best chance to score was in the bottom of the eighth, where they had runners at the corners and one out. But Prince Fielder struck out swinging and Jerry Hairston grounded out to end the inning.

The one redeeming factor of today's game was the major league debut of Michael Fiers. He pitched a scoreless ninth with two strikeouts.
