Brewers Lose To Rockies 2-4

From Sportsline.com:

The bullpen doors opened only once all night, the vendors in the stands had to really hustle and the players hardly had a chance to get any rest between innings.

Aaron Cook won for the first time in a month and the Colorado Rockies beat Chris Capuano and the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 Monday night in the fastest nine-inning game in the 12-year history of Coors Field.

"It was so quick that I couldn't catch my breath between innings," Brewers shortstop Bill Hall said after the game that lasted 2 hours, 6 minutes. "I'd barely sit down in the dugout and I'd have to go back out."

Rockies manager Clint Hurdle said he never imagined he'd witness such a fast game at Coors Field.

"In my first few years here, we'd be in about the fifth or the sixth. We'd be coming up with new game plans and figuring out how many relievers we had left and how we were going to go after it," Hurdle said. "But the game has changed here.

"Plus, both those guys don't mess around. They don't spend any time on the grass or on the dirt. They're making pitches, throwing strikes. That was the best-pitched game I've ever seen here."
