Jorge De La Rosa Roughed Up In Colorado Rockies loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, 6-5


The Colorado Rockies are now 1-2 in Cactus League play as they would take the loss to the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday afternoon, 6-5. Rockies southpaw Jorge De La Rosa would get roughed up in his first tune-up before the regular season, pitching just 1.2 innings, giving up 4 runs on 4 hits while walking 2. He would also give up a solo shot to Rickie Weeks.

Notable Rockies Hitters:

For the Brewers, newly signed free-agent pitcher Matt Garza would also get roughed up. He would pitch just 1.0 inning, giving up 4 runs on 4 hits, walking 2 batters. Manuel Corpas of the Rockies pitched fairly well in his two innings of work but would give up a home run to Brewers left fielder Khris Davis. He would finish the afternoon with 2.0 innings pitched, giving up 1 run on 4 hits.

Notable Rockies Pitchers:

  • Jorge De La Rosa: 1.2 IP, 4 hits, 4 runs, 4 earned, 2 walks, 1 home run.
  • Rex Brothers: 1.0 IP, 1 hit, 1 walk.
  • Chad Bettis: 1.0 IP, 1 hit.

Rockies signed Michael McKenry in the offseason to supply some competition with Jordan Pacheco for the back-up catcher role. He isn’t really known for his bat as much as his defense but produced on the offensive side for the Rockies today. McKenry would go 1-for-3 with a two RBI double that would plate Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer.

Rockies outfielder Brandon Barnes continues to make an impression in camp as he tries to land a fourth outfield spot on the roster. Barnes would go 1-for-2 in today’s game, collecting an RBI single to bring in McKenry after his 2-RBI double.

The Colorado Rockies (1-2 in Cactus League Play) return to action tomorrow as they will have split-squads. First game is against the Seattle Mariners at 1:05 PM MT, and the second game will be at 7:10 PM MT against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
