Rockies Top Brewers 4-1, Off to (Snowy?) Pittsburgh
Michael Cuddyer's two run eighth inning double broke a one all tie and lifted the Colorado Rockies (8-7) over the Milwaukee Brewers (7-9) 4-1 yesterday afternoon in Miller Park. Colorado starter Jeremy Guthrie went seven innings, giving up just one run on three hits. The Rockies are scheduled to face the Pirates in Pittsburgh tonight at 5:05 MT where a Winter Storm Watch is in effect (TV: Root Sports).
Every time a big late-game situation comes up this season, Cuddyer seems to be there to deliver for the Rockies. He had a game-winning pinch-hit on Friday before coming through again Sunday. The veteran slugger seems to enjoy such opportunities, as well.
"Who doesn't?" Cuddyer said. "A man in scoring position and a one-run game, the worst that can happen is you fail. And that happens a lot. So yeah, you've got to relish those opportunities."

Weather permitting, Jamie Moyer will get the start tonight for the Rockies, fresh off his historic performance in Denver last Tuesday when he became the oldest pitcher in MLB history to record a win.
