Colorado Rockies (7-7) left-hander Drew Pomerantz started the game by throwing four perfect innings, before the bottom began to fall out in the fifth, with Rockies pitchers giving up nine runs over the next three innings, leading the Milwaukee Brewers (7-8) to a 9-4 win. Game three of the series is this afternoon at 12:10 at Miller Field (TV: Root Sports).

Pomeranz retired the first 12 batters he faced Saturday, but command issues knocked him out of the game having tossed just five innings and 74 pitches. He opened the fifth with a four-pitch walk, then gave up back-to-back doubles, which put the Brewers ahead, 2-1.

Official: Saturday's Box Score.

"It's just one of those things where I lost my rhythm for a minute and you can't do that in the middle of a game," Pomeranz said. "It's hard to pitch when you lose it for a second there."

In his second start of the season, Pomeranz went five innings, allowing two runs on two hits. He also walked three batters and had a career-high six strikeouts.
