Yesterday's Results

Rockies 5, Brewers 2

The Brewers are not off to a good start this year. Matt Garza was better than Kyle Lohse on Opening Day, but not by much. In his five innings of work, he allowed four runs on eight hits. Tyler Thornburg also allowed a run in his inning of work. The offense showed a little life as well, scoring two runs in the fifth inning. There was a scary moment in the game when Jean Segura was hit in the face by a pitch, but the helmet took most of the hit and Segura was fine after a minute or two.
