DENVER – The Colorado Rockies just haven’t been able to get on a run at home.
After another successful road trip that ended in a six-game winning streak, the Rockies have now lost two in a row in relatively non-competitive fashion, especially from an offensive perspective.
Again struggling to make the most of opportunities and seeing some regression from a not-at-all sharp German Marquez, Colorado fell 5-2 in the first of a four-game set to the Milwaukee Brewers on a warm evening in Denver.
It started in the first when he left a fastball right over the heart of the plate to the first batter of the game, Lorenzo Cain. The Brewers centerfielder deposited that fastball over the wall in center. Marquez gave up a single and a walk with two outs but managed to wriggle out of any damage.
