MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers are off today, after winning their season-opening series against Colorado.
The Brewers took 2-of-3 from the Rockies, after a 5-4 victory yesterday at Miller Park. Pinch-hitter Jody Gerut drove in the winning run with a double in the sixth inning, as the Brewers recovered from a 4-1 deficit.
Doug Davis gave up three runs in the first, and he lasted four innings while giving up four runs on six hits with three walks and four strikeouts. Todd Coffey took over for Davis, and threw two scoreless innings to get the win. Trevor Hoffman threw a perfect ninth for his second save in as many days. He’s just seven away from 600 for his career.
Aaron Cook took the loss for Colorado, giving up five runs in five-and-a-third innings. Miguel Olivo homered in his Rockies’ debut, and Troy Tulowitzki had two hits as Colorado went just 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position. Jim Edmonds had two hits and scored twice for Milwaukee. Catcher George Kottaras had two R-B-I’s without getting a hit in his Brewers’ debut. He drove in his runs with a sacrifice fly and a ground-out.
The Brewers will now get ready to host the St. Louis Cardinals starting tomorrow night.
