According to STATS
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

Though the Milwaukee Brewers and Colorado Rockies are at opposite ends of the ladder in the NL, they've been quite competitive against each other this season.

Following a fourth straight matchup decided by one run, the Rockies and Brewers continue their weekend series Saturday in Milwaukee.

Sitting 10 games over .500 and in the mix for the lead in the NL Central, Milwaukee has won three straight and five of the last six games. That stretch includes three consecutive victories over Colorado, which is 17 games under .500 and 6-29 on the road.

Trailing 4-0 late on Friday, the Brewers fought back to keep Colorado from winning back-to-back road games for the first time since September 2020. Willy Adames hit a game-tying two-run homer in the ninth inning and Keston Hiura, who also homered, delivered a sacrifice fly in 11th, as the Brewers rallied for a 5-4 win in the series opener -- with their home park finally at full capacity attendance.

"Definitely a good way to start it with the full capacity here," said Hiura, who is hitting just .132 after playing his second game Friday since being recalled from Triple-A Nashville.

Milwaukee is 3-2 versus Colorado this season, with four of those five decided by a run and two needing extra innings. Adames is 9-for-22 with two homers and six RBIs against the Rockies in 2021. Teammate Kolten Wong, who also homered Friday, has five hits and two home runs in his last two games versus Colorado.

Scheduled Brewers starter Adrian Houser (4-5, 3.95 ERA) allowed four runs and 18 hits in 21 innings over a four-outing, three-start stretch before he yielded five with nine hits over six innings while not factoring in the decision of a 6-5 victory at Colorado last Saturday.

"I was proud of Adrian Houser," manager Craig Counsell told the Brewers' official website. "Things didn't really go right for him, but he kept kind of limiting the damage.

Raimel Tapia, Yonathan Daza, Ryan McMahon and Trevor Story each had two hits against the right-hander last weekend. Batting .323 on the season, Daza had two hits with an RBI on Friday and is 8-for-21 with five RBIs against the Brewers this season.

"He's played well, there's no doubt about that," manager Bud Black told the Rockies' official website about Daza, who hit .206 through 44 games of his first major-league season in 2020. "The bat speed, the strength to the swing look much improved over the previous couple of seasons that he was in major-league camp with us."

Antonio Senzatela (2-7, 4.83 ERA), slated to start Saturday for Colorado, is 0-2 with a 6.00 ERA in his last three starts. The most recent came on June 18, against the Brewers, where he was charged with four runs -- three earned -- and seven hits over six innings. Luis Urias' clubbed a solo homer for one of his two hits off the right-hander during that contest.

Senzatela is also 0-4 with a 6.94 ERA in five starts on the road in 2021.
