Probable Starting Pitchers: Colorado - Tyler Matzek (1-2, 5.19)
Milwaukee - Kyle Lohse (9-2, 3.20)
(SportsNetwork.com) - Kyle Lohse tries to win his third straight start and
beat Colorado for the second time in less than a week when the Milwaukee
Brewers and Rockies resume a four-game set tonight.
Lohse allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings of a
6-5 win Sunday at Coors Field. He's 6-3 with a 3.88 ERA in 12 career starts
Tyler Matzek took the loss in Sunday's game and will be back on the hill
tonight for the Rockies. The 23-year-old lefty, who makes his fourth major
league appearance, surrendered seven hits and five runs over 5 1/3 innings
Last night, Rickie Weeks was a triple shy of the cycle and the Brewers won,
7-4. Aramis Ramirez and Scooter Gennett each supplied two-run homers for
Milwaukee, which has won six of its last eight overall and continued its
success against Colorado.
The Brewers have now won four straight over the Rockies after sweeping a
three-game set at Coors Field last weekend.
Wily Peralta (9-5) continued his recent dominance, though he did give up four
runs on eight hits with seven strikeouts over six innings to record his fifth
win in as many starts.
"I thought the last three outings, (Wily) has pitched well, but he's not
locked in," said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke. "Now he's struggling to get
through the lineups."
Christian Friedrich (0-2) took the loss after surrendering five runs on nine
hits with eight strikeouts in four innings of work.
"He gave up a few runs early, a couple of home runs," said Rockies manager
Walt Weiss of Friedrich. "I felt like he battled and hung in there."
Ryan Wheeler's grand slam was the only offense for Colorado, which has lost
nine of its last 10.
