Brewers swept by Rockies

Another blown game by the bullpen and the Milwaukee Brewers were swept by the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday in Denver.

Tyler Colvin’s 2-run double in the bottom of the 9th gave the Rockies a 7-6 win and a 3-game sweep over the Brewers.  Eric Young Jr. added a home run for the Rockies. 

Rickie Weeks had three hits and Nyjer Morgan added two hits and three rbi’s in the loss for the Brewers.

Brewers reliever Jim Henderson gave up back-to-back singles and a game-clinching double to Tyler Colvin in the 9th.  It was the 23rd blown save by the Brewers bullpen.

The Brewers had dropped 2 of 3 in Houston prior to the 3-straight losses in Denver to finish 1-5 on the road trip. 

Mark Rogers was in line for the win.  In four starts this season, Rogers saw victory pass him by for the third time.

The Brewers return to Miller Park to open a 4-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies tonight.
