What We Learned: Top Brewers pick Trent Clark injured in second game

The Brewers first round pick, Trent Clark, was injured in his second game in the Brewers system. We discuss this and more in today's What We Learned.

Late last night, during the AZL Brewers game in Arizona, first round pick Trent Clark was playing in his second game of the season for the team. However, it came to an early end after Clark stumbled in the outfield while chasing a ball, and ended up crashing into the wall head first. He was down on the field for 15 minutes as emergency personnel tended to him and took him off the field on a stretcher to a nearby hospital.

This morning, more details were released on Clark, and it is all good so far. Clark had feeling in his neck, legs, and arms after the crash, and tests from last night revealed that he suffered nothing more than a bruise to his head. He was held in the hospital as a precaution, but so far, everything appears to be ok. There's no timetable for his return, but it looks like it won't be long before he's back on the field.

This Weekend's Results

Brewers 9, Rockies 5

Playing at Coors Field was all it took to wake the Brewers bats up. Home runs by Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez backed up a solid effort by Taylor Jungmann, who pitched six innings and held the Rockies to four runs. It broke a six game losing streak by the Brewers.

Rockies 5, Brewers 1

Kyle Lohse technically put up a quality start on Saturday (though you could question the "quality" of it), but the Brewers offense was held in check by Chad Bettis, who only allowed one run on an Adam Lind home run. The Rockies ended their losing streak at five games with this win.

Rockies 10, Brewers 4

This time, the Rockies took advantage of the Coors Field effect. They also took advantage of Matt Garza, who allowed ten runs in 5 1/3 innings. The Brewers did manage to put together four runs and eleven hits, but went 3-for-13 with runners in scoring position to kill any chance they had of rallying further.
