National League Preview from The Sports Network



Tuesday, April 2nd (All times Eastern)

Colorado Rockies (0-1) at Milwaukee Brewers (1-0), 8:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Colorado - Jorge De La Rosa (0-0, 0.00) Milwaukee - Marco Estrada (0-0, 0.00)

(Sports Network) - The Milwaukee Brewers try to make it two straight wins to start the season on Tuesday when they continue their three-game series against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field.

Milwaukee led the majors last season with 29 blown saves and picked up right where it left off last season, as closer John Axford surrendered a two-out game-tying home run to Dexter Fowler in the ninth inning.

However, the Brewers bounced back and won the game in the 10th inning when Jonathan Lucroy's bases-loaded sacrifice fly plated Rickie Weeks and lifted them to a 5-4 triumph.

"I was sitting on a fastball, hopefully over the middle," Lucroy said, "he (Adam Ottavino) left a slider up in the zone and I was just trying to meet it."

Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-4 in the win, while Weeks added two hits and two runs scored and Norichika Aoki added a solo homer.

Troy Tulowitzki hit a two-run homer and Carlos Gonzalez added a solo shot for the Rockies, who were playing their first game under new manager Walt Weiss.

On Tuesday, Colorado will hand the ball to Jorge De La Rosa. A 16- game winner for the Rockies in 2009, De La Rosa missed most of last year recovering from elbow surgery he endured in June 2011. The 31-year-old righty made just three starts late last season for the Rockies and was 0-2 with a 9.28 ERA.

"I've started feeling like me again," De La Rosa said. "Last year was a tough year, but I'm back to finding me."

Milwaukee, meanwhile, will counter with righty Marco Estrada, who pitched to a 1.88 ERA this spring. Estrada began last season in the Brewers' bullpen, but wound up making 23 starts and was 5-7 with a 3.64 ERA.

"Now that I'm here (as a starter), it feels like the right thing," Estrada said. "It is a milestone. It's a milestone just to be part of a Major League team, and getting the chance to start means the world to me. I always have seen myself as a starter, even when I wasn't. [Relief work] was hard for me; not knowing when you were going to pitch. Starting, mentally, is easier. At least for me it is."

Milwaukee were just 1-5 last season against the Rockies.
