The Colorado Rockies faced both the Los Angeles Angels and the Milwaukee Brewers last week heading into the weekend. The Rockies managed to split their series with the Angels at one win a-piece, however; things didn’t fare well in their matchup with the Brewers.

On Thursday, late afternoon the Rockies hosted the Brewers in game one of four and were out paced by Milwaukee out the gate when Brewers center fielder Lorenzo Cain blasted the first pitch of the night for a homer. Colorado responded with a single run in the second, but Milwaukee scored again in the third and added three more in the fifth to Colorado’s only other run also in the fifth. Colorado lost 5 -2 in game one.

Game two made for a great game of baseball as the Rockies reeling from Thursday night’s loss came out swinging in the first four innings scoring 9 runs to Milwaukee’s 3. The Brewers however, weren’t going away anytime soon and tacked on 5 runs over innings 5 and 6 before tying the game in the ninth with 2 more runs. Friday night’s game went extra innings but the Brewers outlasted Colorado on a single hit with bases loaded and single runner scoring.

Colorado came out Saturday with a purpose and shut out the Brewers 4-0. Sunday, however, was a bit of the same from game one. Colorado fell behind in the second, 3–0 while Milwaukee tacked on yet another run in the following inning. Milwaukee added three more runs to Colorado’s 3 run total beating the Rox 7-3.

In other sports the Colorado Rapids lost to the New York Red Bulls 1-2 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on Saturday afternoon. The Rapids have now lost four in a row and are heading back to training this week to prepare for the New York City (NYC) FC. NYC FC tied with the Los Angeles FC Sunday afternoon at the Banc of California Stadium. Colorado has most of this week to prepare before traveling to New York on Thursday and having one day of training on Friday before the scheduled 11 a.m. matchup at Yankee Stadium.

The Denver Broncos have a chance to take a good look at the 2018 draft class in this past week. Many of those draft selectees are as excited as fans for the upcoming Broncos season. Linebacker Josey Jewell has expressed his excitement of the organization’s “winning culture,” a culture the young linebackers says he’s familiar with while playing at Iowa.
