Brewers Vs. Rockies Final Score: Colorado's Offense Shows Up In 12-3 Victory

The Colorado Rockies kicked off the second half of the season with a bang, defeating the Brewers, 12-3, on Thursday night. Ubaldo Jimenez (5-8, 4.08 ERA) pitched effectively for six innings for the win. He gave up two runs on a pair of doubles, including one by pitcher Yovani Gallardo, over the first and second innings. But it was his RBI single in the bottom of the second inning that tied the game at two and kept the Rockies in the game.

Ryan Spilborghs started the bottom of the first inning with a home run (3). In the second inning, Jimenez came to the plate with Ty Wigginton on third base following back-to-back ground outs. It was a single up the middle on the left side of second base.

The fireworks from the Rockies offense started in the fourth inning. In the fourth inning, singles by Chris Iannetta, Ryan Spilborghs and Mark Ellis and a double by Troy Tulowitzki each drove in a run. Ellis added an RBI double in the sixth inning.

Spilborghs became the man of the night, going 4-for-6 with four RBI. He added the last two RBI in the seventh when he doubled in Ian Stewart and Chris Iannetta. Stewart picked up three hits (two doubles) and scored twice. Cole Garner had started the scoring in the seventh when he drew a bases-loaded walk and an eighth-inning infield single plated the Rockies' 12th run.

The Rockies (44-48, 23-22 home) continue this series on Friday evening at 6:40 p.m. Juan Nicasio and Chris Narveson are the scheduled starters.
