On Saturday, the slumping Rockies embarrassed themselves when they allowed the Brewers to score three runs on a wild pitch and en error on the same play. Things haven’t been going so well for the Rockies, as they entered Sunday’s series finale against the Brewers on a five-game losing streak and with a 7-18 record in their last 25 games dating back to May 25.
The embarrassment continued. The Rockies fell 6-5 to the Brewers for their sixth consecutive loss and second consecutive series sweep. They could have potentially won if outfielder Corey Dickerson didn’t run himself into an out in the ninth inning. Dickerson tripled to lead off the inning. Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez made a poor throw to Aramis Ramirez at third base and the ball skipped away towards the visitors’ dugout. Dickerson had a free stroll home, but he tripped halfway down the line and was easily tagged at home plate for the first out of the inning. The next batter, Wilin Rosario, homered to make it a 6-5 game. It might have been a game-tying homer if Dickerson hadn’t stumbled.
