The Milwaukee Brewers entered last night’s game at Coors Field with the worst ranked offense in Major League Baseball. For at least one night, that offense came to life, pounding out 16-hits in a 9-5 win over the Colorado Rockies.
The win brought to an end a 6-game losing streak. Every member of the Brewers starting lineup collected at least 1-hit, including starting pitcher Taylor Jungmann, who collected his first Major League hit.
Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez clubbed first-inning home runs, helping the Brewers jump out to a 6-0 lead. Jungmann made it stand up, holding the Rockies to 4-runs on 8 hits in six innings to pick up the victory. Jungmann improved to 2-1 since coming to the Brewers from Class AAA Colorado Springs.
Game two of the series is tonight. Kyle Lohse (3-8, 6.44 ERA) goes for the Brewers. Chad Bettis (2-2, 3.74) gets the nod for the Rockies.
