Playing in Colorado has been bad luck for the Crew recently, glad we got that monkey off our back tonight. Now spank them tomorrow.

"Coors Field, despite being home to one of the perennial worst teams in baseball, has been the Milwaukee Brewers’ personal house of horrors.

The Brewers, no matter how good a team they have been in recent history, have made a pattern of coming to the capital of Colorado, breathing in the mile-high air and playing a wild ballgame capped with an agonizing finish.

Tuesday night, Milwaukee once again appeared to be headed down the hallway in the haunted house with a trap door at the end, the same one they have stumbled into time and time again in recent years when facing the Colorado Rockies on the road.

Instead, the ninth inning was an exercise in exorcism.

The Brewers rallied from a run behind in the ninth inning, taking the lead on a two-out, two-strike hit by pitch drawn by Rhys Hoskins with the bases loaded, and getting a lockdown save from Trevor Megill to pick up a 4-3 win and snap a six-game losing streak in Denver."
