Brewers win one the hard way
06/22/2004 10:59 PM ET
MILWAUKEE -- Geoff Jenkins and Lyle Overbay notched RBIs the hard way and Doug Davis became the Brewers' first seven-game winner in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Rockies in front of 13,264 fans at Miller Park.

With the bases loaded in the seventh inning and the game tied, 1-1, Jenkins was hit on the right hip and Overbay across the letters of his jersey on consecutive pitches from submarine-style left-hander Javier Lopez, sparking a five-run Brewers outburst.

Craig Counsell was plunked later in the inning by right-hander Steve Reed, who surrendered Keith Ginter's two-run double and Chad Moeller's RBI groundout before getting out of the inning.

Lopez (0-2) was saddled with the loss and one of the uglier pitching lines in Miller Park history: zero innings pitched, five earned runs, two hits, two hit by pitches and one walk.

Milwaukee left-hander Davis (7-5) made his 12th "quality start" (six or more innings and three or fewer runs) in 16 outings this season, holding the Rockies to a run on six hits in seven innings. Davis walked only one, hit a batter and struck out six, one shy of the season high he established in his last start.

Since dropping the opener of six consecutive series from May 14-31, the Brewers have won all six of their series openers this month. They have won nine of their last 13 games.
