Forgive the Milwaukee Brewers if they seemed to want to celebrate after their 7-5 win over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday. The Brewers were 0 for 6 against the Rockies last season and they dropped the season opener this year at Miller Park.
Casey McGehee clubbed a 3-run homer in the first and Rickie Weeks added a solo home run in the 5th to help lead the Brewers offensively.
Randy Wolf won his Brewers debut, working 6 2/3 innings, allowing 4 runs on 9 hits, but he struck out 8 and walked nobody. McGehee (3 hits) said Wolf brings a lot to the table.
Wolf said he’s excited about the ovation he received from the crowd as he departed in the 7th. Wolf said he’s excited for the win, but knows his performance has to get better.
Trevor Hoffman allowed a run in the 9th, but still notched his 592nd career save. The Brewers close out the 3-game series against the Rockies at Miller Park. Doug Davis faces Aaron Cook in the pitching match-up.
