Rockies Vs. Brewers: Shaun Marcum Keeps Colorado Down In 3-2 Brewers Victory

The Colorado Rockies just didn't have an answer with Shaun Marcum on the mound for the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night. The Rockies dropped to 6-10 in one-run games following the 3-2 loss.

Marcum held the Rockies to one run in eight innings and struck out eight. The lone run he allowed was a Carlos Gonzalez home run (6) in the first inning. Closer John Axford almost blew the save in the bottom of the ninth, but he recovered. Troy Tulowitzki had tripled to deep right after Corey Hart let the ball get by him. This led to an RBI ground out by Seth Smith. With the Rockies building something, Jason Giambi singled, but was left stranded as Ty Wigginton struck out to end the game.

The Brewers got to Rockies starter Clayton Mortensen (1-1) in the first inning on a Prince Fielder RBI double and a run-scoring error by Jose Lopez on a Casey McGehee ball in play. Jonathan Lucroy added the third run on a fifth-inning home run. Reliever Matt Daley struck out all three batters he faced.

The Rockies (23-21, 12-11 away) finish this series on Sunday afternoon with Ubaldo Jimenez on the mound. First pitch is scheduled for 12:10 p.m. MT.
