The Colorado Rockies and Milwaukee Brewers face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at American Family Field. It took extra innings, but it was the Rockies that were able to secure the victory. 

Another Rockies Pitcher that Stinks

The Rockies pitching has been awful all season and they are sending another pitcher to the mound that has really struggled. Getting the start for the Rockies will be Chris Flexen who sits with a 1-5 record and an ERA of 7.82. In his last start against the St. Louis Cardinals, he went five innings giving up ten hits and three runs. The three runs don't sound awful, but he gave up ten hits, and it could have been even worse. The Rockies are running out of options, but Flexen doesn’t deserve to be starting the MLB anymore. The Rockies are averaging 4.29 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.29 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.8 runs per game. The pitching overall is ranked 29th in baseball. 

Brewers Offense Turning it Around?

Is the Brewers offense finally turning it around? In the first game of this season the Brewers offense scored 12 runs on the way to the victory. William Contreras finished with three hits, two runs, and three RBIs. The Brewers are averaging 4.26 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.37 runs per game. The offense is ranked 23rd while the pitching is ranked 10th. On the mound for the Brewers will be Adrian Houser who sits with a 4-3 record and an ERA of 4.19. In his last start against the Pittsburgh Pirates he went six innings giving up four hits and one run.
