Guerra is put on Brewers' DL - Los Angeles Times

Doyle BarkerApr 06, 2017

On Monday against the Rockies, Guerra last only three innings while allowing one hit, two earned runs and one home run.

But, with the Brewers trailing, 2-0, in the bottom of the third inning, Guerra suffered a right calf strain running to first base on a sacrifice bunt.

Two right-handers who took disparate roads to the majors will share a distinction Monday as opening-day starters when the Rockies visit the Brewers at Miller Park. "When he throws the pitch, it's phenomenal to catch".

Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado, one of the best players in the game, showed what stellar defense can do for a team when he dived and speared a rocket off the bat of Ryan Braun to start a game-ending double play. Anderson was 0-4 with a 4.71 ERA in seven road outings but will look to silence Ryan Braun, who homered against him previous year, and Jonathan Villar, who singled and doubled in that contest.

Carlos Estevez (1-0) pitched a hitless sixth.

Reynolds reached four times for the Rockies, who erased a one-run deficit by capitalizing on two late errors by the Brewers and got four scoreless innings from their bullpen. Pinch-hitter Hernan Perez missed an extra-base hit down the right-field line by about 18 inches before Ottavino whiffed him to end the inning.

Even though Milwaukee has hung around in the first two games of the series, the fact of the matter is that Colorado still won the game regardless of how close it was. He allowed two runs in five innings and struck out 10 on August 24 at Miller Park but took the loss in a 7-1 defeat.

Brewers: RHP Zach Davies made his first opening-day roster after a solid 2016.

Thames' two-run double tied the game at 4 and chase starter Jon Gray with no outs.

Left-hander Tommy Milone took over for Guerra in the fourth and allowed the Rockies to double the margin with three hits.

Reynolds, holding the fort at first base until Ian Desmond returns, had a big day, batting 2-for-3 and driving in three runs. The other players were: RHPs Jairo Diaz (elbow) and Chad Qualls (forearm), LHP Chris Rusin (oblique) and C Tom Murphy (right forearm).

Brewers: Minor league C Rene Garcia is out of a hospital and after sustaining a concussion in a play at the plate during Saturday's exhibition against the Chicago White Sox.

"They know that they can be here for a long time", says Brewers general manager David Stearns, "they know that they, in a very real sense control their own destiny within this organization".

Rockies: LHP Tyler Anderson (5-6, 3.54 ERA in 2016) makes his debut after compiling a 4.08 ERA in six spring training starts.

The Brewers will start the season with what's believed to be the lowest payroll in baseball.
