Colorado scores two in the eighth to defeat Milwaukee

The Milwaukee Brewers blew a one-run lead in the eighth inning yesterday and lost at Colorado 6-5. Troy Tulowitski led off the eighth with a double. Michael Cuddyer then tied the game with a double. He went to third on a wild pitch, and Nolen Arenado drove Cuddyer home with a game-winning single. John Axford gave up all three hits and both runs as he took the loss. Axford is now 4-and-4. Matt Belisle got the win in relief. He’s 5-and-5. Brewers’ starter Donovan Hand went six innings for his longest start of the season. He gave up three runs – all solo homers to Tulowitzki, Dexter Fowler, and Corey Dickerson. Norichika Aoki and Yuniesky Betancourt homered for Milwaukee, which lost 2-of-3 in Denver and 4-of-6 in their season series against the Rockies. The Brewers open a four-game series in Chicago tonight against the Cubs. Right-hander Kyle Lohse will start for the Crew against Cubs’ right-hander Jeff Samardzjia. 


Brewers’ shortstop Jean Segura is doing fine, after he was hit on his right forearm by a pitch Saturday night. Manager Ron Roenicke said Segura did not need X-rays. Still, he was given the day off after playing in all but three of Milwaukee’s 104 games this season. Roenicke said he might give Segura another off-day during a four-game series with the Chicago Cubs that begins tonight at Wrigley Field. The 23-year-old Segura leads the Brewers with a .315 batting average, 31 stolen bases, and 57 runs scored.
