Yesterday's Results

Rockies 5, Brewers 4

Things were looking up yesterday for a while. The Brewers got an early 2-0 lead thanks to a two-run home run from Adam Lind. Meanwhile, Wily Peralta was dealing for most of his start. He pitched seven innings, allowing two runs on seven hits. He left with the game tied, and Jonathan Broxton promptly gave the Rockies the lead with a two-run home run from Carlos Gonzalez. However, the Brewers rallied with run-scoring hits from Ryan Braun and Carlos Gomez in the ninth to tie it at 4-4 and send it into extra innings. In the tenth, Francisco Rodriguez came out and gave up a solo home run to Wilin Rosario, and former Brewer John Axford pitched a scoreless tenth to end the game.
