Davis continues to struggle as the closer for the Rockies, as that was his sixth blow save of the year, which is already a career high. It was also his second blown save in as many days, as he also gave up a walk-off hit to Jose Martinez and the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday afternoon. He walked two in the ninth inning on Friday and dropped to 1-5 on the season.
He also allowed a walk-off home run to Travis Shaw in his last appearance in Milwaukee on September 23rd, 2017 as a member of the Chicago Cubs.
The walk-off blast overshadowed the starting pitching duel that this game featured between German Marquez and Junior Guerra. Marquez allowed two runs on three hits over seven innings, while Guerra gave up three runs on five hits and lasted eight innings. The Brewers starter seemed to be well-rested after getting sent home from the late start against the Los Angeles Dodgers the night before. His team wouldn't get in until 6:00am Friday morning following a 21-5 blowout loss.
The game also featured three other home runs, as Christian Yelich went deep for the Brewers, while Trevor Story and Carlos Gonzalez connected with long balls for Colorado.
The win for the Brewers helps them keep pace with the first-place Cubs, who earned a 5-4 win over the San Diego Padres earlier in the day. The Brew-Crew remain just one game back for the top spot in the NL Central, but they do hold the top spot in the Wild Card race. Meanwhile, the Rockies. sit two games back in the NL West and 2.5 games out of the final National League Wild Card spot.
