MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - Milwaukee Brewers’ manager Ron Roenicke is already expressing concerns about his pitching staff, after the Brewers lost 7-3 at home to Colorado Wednesday night. Milwaukee never led in this one, as the Rockies teed off for 15 hits and three homers. John Axford gave up two of those blasts in the ninth inning, which broke open a one-run game. Michael Cuddyer and Wilin Rosario each hit two-run homers on the night, and Dexter Fowler added a solo shot. Meanwhile, the Brewers’ offense struggled against Juan Nicasio, who gave up just two runs in six innings on seven hits. He got the win. Wily Peralta took the loss, giving up four runs on six hits in five-and-a-third innings with three walks and four strikeouts. Rickie Weeks had three hits for the Crew, including a solo homer. Milwaukee lost two of three in its season-opening series, as the Rockies’ offense pounded out a total of 41 hits and eight homers. Roenicke said his pitchers are not getting ahead of batters and, even though it’s early, it’s a problem that needs to be fixed right away. The Brewers are off today, and will host Arizona Friday night.
