The Milwaukee Brewers are one win away from sweeping the National League Division Series after their4-0victory over the Colorado Rockies in Game 2 at Miller Park on Friday.After their dramatic 10th-inning walk-off in Game 1 Jeimer Candelario Jersey , the Brewers once again held Colorado's offense at bay. Jhoulys Chacin, starting on three days rest, tossed five shutout innings with three hits, three walks and three strikeouts.Mike Moustakas, who delivered the game-winning single Thursday, carried over his momentum to Game 2. The two-time All-Star went 2-for-4 with one RBI and one run scored. Christian Yelich made an impact without recording a hit, going 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored.Meanwhile, offense remains a problem for the Rockies. They have scoredfour runs in three playoff games dating back to the NL Wild Card Game against the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday.Brewers' Bullpen Receives Huge Boost with Jhoulys Chacin's Strong StartMilwaukee manager Craig Counsell went with a bullpen day in Game 1, using six pitchers in 10 innings, so going with Chacin on short rest had the potential to be a disaster.Instead, the former Rockies ace responded with his third straight start of allowing one or fewer runs over at least five innings. He did it Friday under all-new circumstances:Todd Rosiak Todd_RosiakPitching on three days rest for the first time in his career, Jhoulys Chacin threw 85 pitches. Thats the most hes thrown in a start since Aug. 31 (102).In recording the first 15 outs, Chacin allowed Counsell to set up the bullpen how he wanted over the final four innings. Corey Knebel only threw 12 pitches in the sixth after going for 1.2 innings in Game 1.The Rockies were able to get the tying run on third with one out in the top of the seventh. But Joakim Soria struck out Matt Holliday, and Josh Hader only threw two pitches before getting Charlie Blackmon to line out to end the threat.Jeremy Jeffress responded after blowing the save Thursday by allowing two runs in the ninth and had two scoreless innings to close out Game 2.The strength of Milwaukee's pitching staff is the bullpen http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-dixon-machado-jersey , but that unit needs starters to eat some of the innings to avoid being taxed early in the playoffs. Chacin gave the Brewers what they needed.Now, the pitching staff gets a day off before trying to finish off the series Sunday. Rockies' Quiet Bats Must Take Advantage of Coors FieldThese aren't your parents' Rockies, who used to be built on a lineup that was capable of scoring 10 runs seemingly at the drop of a hat.Depth has been a significant problem throughout the 2018 campaign. The Rockies had the third-worst weighted on-base average (.289) and the second-worst weighted runs created plus (78) in road games this season, perFanGraphs.Going byBaseball Reference's OPS+, where 100 is average, only Blackmon (115), Trevor Story (127) and Nolan Arenado (133) were above that threshold. That trio is 3-for-23 with two RBI and nine strikeouts against the Brewers.Dave Althouse davealthouseThe Rockies offense in this series... rs95DldlJEMark Haas markhaastvThe #Rockies pitching staff deserves to be heading home with the series at least 1-1. The #Rockies offense deserves to be heading home down 0-2.The results through three playoff games away from Coors Field have been alarming. The Rockies have 21 hits in 32 innings, including one for extra bases in two games against the Brewers.Despite the dire results so far, there is hope. The Colorado offense had an OPS 187 points higher at Coors Field (.852) than on the road (.665).The Brewers will be starting Miley in Game 3. The Rockies hit .272/.336/.462 against southpaws and led MLB with 258 runs scored against them during the regular season.Milwaukee's Timely Hitting Has Rockies Searching for AnswersEven though the Brewers are celebrating a 2-0 series lead, their lineup isn't setting the scoreboard on fire.They did break through with three runs in the eighth inning of Game 2, nearly matching their total from the first 17 innings of the series (four).But baserunning blunders have cost Milwaukee additional runs.Ryan Braun was thrown out trying to score from second on a wild pitch in the first inning of Game 1.On Friday,Hernan Perez was thrown out at third after being caught in a rundown as he attempted a double steal in the bottom of the fourth inning, withRockies starter Tyler Anderson walking a tight rope to keep it a one-run deficit.Unlike the Rockies, though Justin Verlander Jersey , the Brewers have been able to get timely hits that make up for those blunders. Moustakas and Yelich have carried the offense through the first two games.FOX Sports: MLB MLBONFOXMoose has just gone straight clutch mode for the #Postseason fCJUIg1UG8That duo has combined to go 5-for-13 with one home run, one double, four RBI, four runs scored and five walks. Erik Kratz broke open Game 2 with a two-run single in the bottom of the eighth to make it 4-0.The Rockies couldn't have asked for more from their pitching staff, yet their efforts have been for naught. Coors Field has been their great equalizer this year. Only three NL teams鈥攖he Brewers, Cubs, Philadelphia Phillies鈥攈ad more home wins than the Rockies (47). What's Next?German Marquez (14-11, 3.77 ERA) will attempt to keep the Rockies' season alive against Brewers left-hander Wade Miley (5-2, 2.57 ERA) as the series shifts to Coors Field for Game 3 on Sunday at 4:37 p.m. ET. San Francisco Giants CEO Larry Baer is taking a leave of absence after video surfaced last week in which he wrestles an object away from his wife, Pam Baer, and knocks her to the ground.John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle shared the team's press release on Baer's leave:John Shea JohnSheaHeyLarry Baer will take a leave of absence. This makes it official: w19wvohiDuAccording to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, "Giants officials spent part of the weekend holding internal discussions on how to proceed."Per Schulman, the executive team that will handle Baer's role in his absence will be led by president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi, along with four executive vice presidents: Alfonso Felder Houston Astros Jersey , Mario Alioto, Jack Bair and Staci Slaughter.Schulman added: "Not immediately clear is who will become the Giants' 'control person,' the owner that Major League Baseball recognizes as the person authorized to represent the team in league decisions. Also not clear is who in the organization will work with president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi on roster decisions."Pam Baer said in a statement she had taken her husband's phone, and when he tried to take it from her, the chair she was sitting on tipped over, and a previous foot injury prevented her from regaining her balance, per ESPN.com.The Baers said in a joint statement that they were "deeply embarrassed by the situation and have resolved the issue."Larry Baer also apologized in a separate statement Friday."I am truly sorry for the pain that I have brought to my wife, children and to the organization," he said. "It is not reflective of the kind of a person that I aspire to be, but it happened, and I will do whatever it takes to make sure that I never behave in such an inappropriate manner again."
