Late Single Leads Rockies Over Brewers 4-3

Michael Cuddyer was out of the lineup last night with an injured toe, but it wasn’t enough to keep him from delivering a pinch-hit single in the ninth to drive in the winning run and lift the Colorado Rockies (7-6) over the Milwaukee Brewers (6-8) 4-3 at Miller Field. The two teams will go at it again this evening at 5:10 in Milwaukee (TV: Root Sports).

Pinch-hitting for Dexter Fowler with a runner on third and one out, Cuddyer drove a 1-1 curveball from Brewers closer John Axford back through the middle to put Colorado in front for a 4-3 victory at Miller Park.

Though he walked with a noticeable limp in the visitor’s clubhouse and during batting practice, Cuddyer’s bruised left big toe did not matter once he entered the game.

Official: Friday’s Box Score.

“It doesn’t feel good, but at the same time, it’s not going to prevent me from doing much,” Cuddyer said. “I didn’t feel it when I was running to first base.”

Cuddyer picked up his team-leading 18th hit of the season and his ninth RBI, tying him for the most on the team. In his first year with the club, Cuddyer has quickly become a key contributor for the Rockies.

Tickets are available for the Rockies next home game at Coors Field on April 27th vs. the NY Mets, and can be purchased by calling (800) 388-ROCK, or click here.
