Colorado Rockies podcast: Series preview with the Milwaukee Brewers
By Editorial Staff
The Milwaukee Brewers ended the 2018 season for the Colorado Rockies, polishing off an NLDS sweep at Coors Field. Now, in the final three games of the 2019 campaign for the Rockies, they will try to play spoiler when Milwaukee visits Denver in the regular-season finale.
Milwaukee enters Friday’s game against the Colorado Rockies trailing the St. Louis Cardinals by just one game in the National League Central. Having already clinched a playoff spot, the Brewers are hoping to win out against the Rockies and grab the Central division crown (if the Chicago Cubs can lend a hand by beating St. Louis).
Additionally, should Milwaukee not capture the Central, the Brewers are fighting with the Washington Nationals to host the NL Wild Card Game. The two teams are separated by one game, with Washington currently holding the home-field edge.
Colorado, meanwhile, will be looking to end what has been a very disappointing season on a positive note. The Rockies dropped two of three to San Francisco to finish 28-53 on the road. However, Colorado is 40-38 at Coors Field this season.

Rockies fans remember the last time the Brewers came into town and posted a 6-0 win to advance to the NLCS. Milwaukee outscored Colorado 13-2 in the three-game sweep, helping push Colorado to say goodbye to some of its veteran players and usher in the next generation of Rockies talent that has included Ryan McMahon, Garrett Hampson and Raimel Tapia.
For this preview, we chatted with Dave Gasper, one of the co-experts at ReviewingTheBrew.com, our FanSided cousin that covers Milwaukee. Gasper joins our latest podcast to talk about how Milwaukee overcame the loss of Christian Yelich, how Jordan Lyles has become a success story and what this series means to the Brewers.
