MILWAUKEE – The story for the entire 2018 Colorado Rockies campaign has been the flipping of their script from a club that used to be known for offense and nothing else to one that has relied heavily on pitching and defense.

But that hasn’t stopped the offensive woes of the team from proving problematic throughout the year, especially here in the last three games they have played.

Those struggles were on full display in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Milwaukee Brewers when they collected just six hits and could not score a single run, going 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position including a couple of brutal situational sequences.

As such, the Brewers rode to a relatively comfortable 4-0 win and the Rockies will need to win in Denver on Sunday to avoid getting swept.

The Rockies got a pair of two-out base runners in the first on a single from Nolan Arenado and a walk to Carlos Gonzalez but Trevor Story struck out on a breaking pitch well into the dirt, missing out on the first chance of the game.

Drew E. Creasman was born in Grand Junction, Colorado and currently resides in Boulder, CO. He is a full time Rockies beat writer managing editor of   Education: Studied Philosophy and Political Science at the University of Colorado along with Music History and Composition.   Career: After six years as an independent musician and doing sporadic political work, I began to write about the Colorado Rockies for PurpleRow.com in the winter of 2013. Three years later, I came to BSN Denver to run the Rockies content. In short time, I found myself interviewing GM Dan O’Dowd and forging relationships with countless individuals in and around the organization.   A few highlights include hosting the only daily Rockies talk show in the world, a podcast that has welcomed Nolan Arenado and Jon Gray among others, and our wall-to-wall coverage of the 2017 Wild Card Game. I’ve also been a regular on 850 koa, 104.3 The Fan, Mile High Sports Radio and numerous podcasts.   Most Memorable Sports Moment: Game 3 of the 2007 NLDS. Ubaldo Jimenez, blackout, and the Rockies win their first postseason series.   The finest sports book I’ve ever read: Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella.   One sports movie I can’t live without: One!? Just one!? Ok … Sugar. But Field of Dreams and Friday Night Lights come incredibly close.   Most memorable experience as a reporter: Either the aforementioned Arenado interview or, and this is an odd one, spending time swapping stories with other reporters at Marc Stout’s going-away party.   The sport that started it all: Clearly baseball. I’ve been watching baseball since before I can actually remember watching baseball. It’s just always been a part of me. I can still recall the feeling of wanting to be old enough to play T-ball. I love other sports, but I had loved and played baseball for years before I was even aware anything else existed.
