In the first two games of a four-game series, the Milwaukee Brewers lost 8-7 and won 4-3 against the Colorado Rockies. In the middle of the third game of the series, the Brewers were able to punish the Rockies and walk away with a 3-0 shutout victory. Milwaukee now extends their lead in the NL Central to seven games over the second-place St. Louis Cardinals with a record of 52-35. Colorado is 29-57 and the worst team in the National League.

Milwaukee has three more series to play before the All-Star break. After that series concludes on July 4, we’ll see the Brewers travel to Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers in a three-game series starting Friday night. The Colorado Rockies stay home and welcome the Kansas City Royals for another three-game series.

Yelich has a .696 on-base percentage against Hudson, second only to Yankees Juan Soto who has a .750 on-base percentage against Blue Jays starter Kevin Gausman. An inning later, Brewers first baseman Jake Bauers hit an RBI line-drive single to right field.

Just three innings later, with the bases loaded, Brewers center fielder Garrett Mitchell recorded an RBI walk to make it a 3-0 game. Two batters ahead of Mitchell, Brewers shortstop Willy Adames was ejected on a third-strike call after barking at home plate umpire Mark Ripperger. In the bottom of the eighth inning, with runners on first and second, Christian Yelich was able to make a great running catch off the left field wall for the out. Colorado would record eight hits, but they could not bring anything home and went on to lose the game 3-0.
