WP: Kyle Freeland (3-4)
LP: Brent Suter (2-3)
HR: Trevor Story 2 (9,10)
The Brewers may have used up all of their offense last night. They couldn’t come up with some runs tonight.
Before the game even started, it was going to be a rough one for the team. Chase Anderson got scratched from his start due to illness. No word has come out yet on the severity of it, so we’ll have to wait and see when he makes his next start. He was in the clubhouse, so it doesn’t appear to be too severe.
In his place, Brent Suter moved up a day to pitch against the Rockies tonight. It ended up being a rough one for him. He pitched five innings, allowing four runs and seven hits with just two strikeouts and a walk. Most of the damage came as a result of Trevor Story, who went 3-for-3 against Suter, with two home runs and an RBI double.
Meanwhile, the Brewers offense did have their chances tonight. They did have five hits and four walks, though only Brent Suter reached base twice, with a double and a walk. They had runners in scoring position in the 2nd, 3rd, 6th, and 7th innings, with chances to get on the board. However, the offense combined to go 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position as a team. That’s the deciding factor from the game, as the Brewers could get runners on base, but couldn’t bring them in. Ten strikeouts by the offense also made it challenging to get anything going.
In the bullpen, Alec Asher made his Brewers debut and pitched two innings, allowing two hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Asher’s time with the Brewers was short, as he was sent back to Colorado Springs after the game and Jorge Lopez was recalled. Matt Albers also pitched, putting together a perfect inning with a strikeout.
The Brewers finish up the series against the Rockies tomorrow at 2:10 pm. With Brent Suter getting moved up a day and Chase Anderson potentially recovering from illness, the Brewers decided to make a roster move for tomorrow’s game. They have announced that Freddy Peralta has been recalled and will make his major league debut.
