The Milwaukee Brewers and Colorado Rockies were the two biggest surprises to start the season. Both teams were led by ridiculous offenses, with the Rockies putting up unheard of numbers. But as we enter the end of June, the Brewers have managed to maintain their first-place standing, while the Rockies have flamed out, dropping below .500. The Rockies schedule does them no favors with the Brewers next, for a three-game series at Coors Field. Rockies tickets are averaging $37 for the series for a drop of 36 percent from the season average.
6/20 MIL Marco Estrada vs. COL Christian Bergman | Avg. Price: $37 | Get-in Price: $15
Christian Bergman is making his third career start in the first game of this series. He’s gone six innings in both his starts giving up a combined five runs, and sporting a 7/2 K/BB ratio. Marco Estrada is starting for Milwaukee, and fans don’t have reason to be too excited when Estrada appears on the Brewers schedule. He has easily been the worst starter for the Brewers and has rated as below replacement level. The average price of the game is right at the series average at $37, but the get-in price is the highest at $15.
6/21 MIL Wily Peralta vs. COL Christian Friedrich | Avg. Price: $38 | Get-in Price: $9
It’s another young starter for the Rockies in the next game. Christian Friedrich hasn’t pitched in a major league game since 2012 when he put up some pretty ghastly numbers in 84.2 innings. He hasn’t performed much better in AAA this year, but with ineffectiveness and injuries plaguing the Rockies rotation, they decided to give Friedrich a shot. Fans attending the game will get some good news with a Carlos Gonzalez jersey given away to fans attending as part of a promotion. The get-in price is only $9 and the average is $38.
6/22 MIL Kyle Lohse vs. COL Tyler Matzek | Avg. Price: $36 | Get-in Price: $9
Youth is certainly a theme in this series for the Rockies, but it also shows you how much they’ve struggled with their rotation. 23-year-old Tyler Matzek gets his third start of his career in the final game of the series. He’s 1-1 and has been a bit Jekyll and Hyde in his first two starts. In his first he went seven, allowed two runs and struck out seven. In his second he lasted only five, gave up ten hits, three runs, and walked two without a strikeout. But it’s another promotional giveaway for this game with a Troy Tulowitzki bobblehead gnome given to fans attending. The average price of the game is $36 with get-in price of $9.
