Milwaukee gave up seven runs in the first two innings of their 11-6 loss to Colorado on Thursday afternoon, and the Brewers ended up splitting a four-game series with the Rockies as a result.
Freddy Peralta's return from the injured list also came at an interesting point for Milwaukee's pitching staff, as Peralta remained in the game for four innings despite allowing six earned runs, and nine total, on eight hits with two walks.
Taylor Williams, Jeremy Jeffress, and Jay Jackson went the rest of the way for the Brewers, yielding six more hits and two more earned runs.
The Brewers collected nine hits and six runs offensively, but after going down 7-0 early, the deficit proved to be too much to overcome.
Milwaukee begins a three-game series with the New York Mets on Friday.
