Mark Rogers gave up three runs in the first and another in the second inning to start in a deep 4-0 hole to the Colorado Rockies yesterday. His offense came through and got the rookie starter a lead before Rodgers handed the ball over to the bullpen.
In line for his first Major League win, Rogers watched a victory evaporate with another blown save. It marked the third time in four 2012 starts for the fire balling right hander. Milwaukee was swept in Colorado with a series closing 7-6 loss to the Rockies.
It was the Brewers' 23rd blown save, most in the Majors. It was also their 23rd loss decided in an opponent's final at-bat, and their 10th walk-off loss on the road.
Manager Ron Roenicke has seen John Axford, Francisco Rodriguez and now Jim Henderson blow saves in the ninth inning.
