DENVER, CO (WHBL) - After nine straight quality starts, Brewers’ rookie Mike Fiers was shelled Monday night as Milwaukee lost at Colorado 9-6. Fiers came into the game with a 1.80 E-R-A – the Majors’ best since he was called up in late May. But he lasted just two-plus innings against the Rockies, giving up eight runs on nine hits with a walk and only one strikeout. The loss dropped Fiers to 6-5, and his E-R-A mushroomed to 2.63. Colorado led 8-0 after three innings, and Milwaukee made the final score look respectable when Rickie Weeks hit a three-run homer in the ninth. Carlos Gomez added a two-run blast and went 3 for 4 on the night. Aramis Ramirez hit his National League-leading 38th double and 55th extra base hit, but the Brewers still managed to lose their 12th road game in their last 13. D-J LeMahieu had a career-high four hits, all singles. And he drove in a pair, as the Rockies out-hit the Brewers 15-9. Dexter Fowler was the only position player for Colorado not to get an R-B-I. Jeff Francis went five-and-a-third innings to pick up the win for Colorado. The Brewers and Rockies will play again tonight in Denver. Left-hander Randy Wolf faces Rockies’ right-hander Tyler Chatwood. Coverage on WHBL gets underway at 7:05.
