According to STATS

Colorado Rockies at Milwaukee Brewers

  1. These teams split a four-game series at Coors Field from June 17-20, with Colorado winning the first two and Milwaukee the last two. The last three games were all decided by one run each. The Brewers won both of their games with go-ahead runs in the top of the ninth inning.
  2. Since June 10, the Rockies have been going up-and-down (lost four, won five, lost three and on Wednesday they won at Seattle). They are an MLB-worst 6-28 (.176) on the road, compared to 25-16 (.610) at home.
  3. The Brewers are 4-1 in their last five games after losing five straight. Six of their last nine games have been decided by one run, with the Brewers winning the last three of those. Milwaukee has nine errors in its last 20 games including four against Colorado on June 17.
  4. Raimel Tapia had his 18-game hit streak snapped on Wednesday. It was the longest of his career and the second longest in MLB this season behind Nick Castellanos' 21-game streak. The last Rockies player to have a longer streak was Carlos Gonzalez, spanning the 2015 and 2016 seasons (21 games).
  5. Luis Urias has a seven-game hit streak, with six runs scored and six RBI in that time. His average has improved each month this year: .206 in April, .232 in May and now .270 in June.
  6. Jon Gray was 4-2 with a 3.12 ERA through May 5 and is 0-4 with a 6.35 ERA since, failing to reach the fourth inning in his last two starts. Corbin Burnes has allowed seven earned runs over his last two starts compared to seven earned runs in his four previous starts combined.
Notes Applicable For Series Dates: 6/25/2021 thru 6/27/2021

With their ballpark ready for full capacity, the Milwaukee Brewers aim to avoid their longest home losing streak of the season.

Meanwhile, the Colorado Rockies look to win back-to-back road games for the first time in 2021.

After splitting a four-game set at Colorado last weekend, the Brewers and Rockies open a three-game series in front of a potentially packed house in Milwaukee on Friday.

The Brewers won four of the last five to complete a 4-3 road trip. That included two consecutive victories at Colorado.

"We just have to continue trying to play good baseball and keep putting ourselves in position to win to stay in the thick of things," Brewers pitcher Brandon Woodruff told the club's official website.

Having a full ballpark for the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, on what the franchise and city are branding "Re-Opening Day," would provide some obvious momentum for Milwaukee, which was swept over three games by Cincinnati in its most recent home series from June 14-16. The Brewers totaled four runs through that set, which followed a seven-game home winning streak during which they averaged 5.7 runs.

The Rockies, meanwhile, yielded four total runs while splitting a two-game set at Seattle this week. At 6-28, Colorado has the fewest road wins in the majors, but is coming off a 5-2 victory over the Mariners on Wednesday. It last won consecutive road contests Sept. 5-6, 2020, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

"We have to start winning on the road," Rockies pitcher German Marquez, like his teammates all season, repeated to the team's official website.

Jon Gray (4-6, 4.29 ERA) is slated to come off the disabled list from a forearm flexor strain to make his first start since June 4. It's been a rough season for the right-hander, who is 0-4 with a 6.35 ERA in five starts since last posting a victory on May 5. Gray's also 0-4 with a 6.75 ERA on the road in 2021.

He's 1-1 with a 5.90 ERA in five starts against Brewers, but last faced them in 2019. Milwaukee star Christian Yelich is a career .368 hitter (7-for-19) with three doubles and a homer versus Gray.

Yelich went 5-for-14 with five walks in last week's series at Colorado. Riding a seven-game hitting streak, teammate Luis Urias was 7-for-15 with two doubles and a homer during the Rockies' series.

The Brewers will turn to Corbin Burnes (3-4, 2.62 ERA), who faces the Rockies for a second straight start after allowing four runs, eight hits, two walks and striking out six over 5 1-3 innings of a 6-5, 10-inning defeat last Friday. In his last two starts, the right-hander has yielded seven earned runs, 17 hits and walked five over 9 1-3 innings.

Colorado's Raimel Tapia is 3-for-4 all-time versus Burnes and batted .438 during an 18-game hitting streak that ended Wednesday. Rockies star Trevor Story homered twice Wednesday and is batting .382 with nine RBIs in his last nine games.

Story, however, is 1-for-6 against Burnes during his career.
