Brewers Struggle In Series Finale

From Sportsline.com:

The Milwaukee Brewers' lineup struggled to figure out Byung-Hyun Kim. A lot of hitters have had that problem recently.

Kim allowed one run in eight innings and Todd Helton homered and drove in three runs to lead the Colorado Rockies over the Brewers 8-2 Wednesday night.

"When he can get the ball in the spots he wants, he's tough," Colorado manager Clint Hurdle said of Kim. "He has some deception and his pitches have some late life."

Kim (7-6) yielded seven hits, struck out five and didn't walk a batter in the longest outing of his career. He has allowed only four runs in 33 innings over his last five starts at Coors Field, an ERA of 1.09 over than span.

Kim set his previous mark for longest outing with 7 2/3 innings in a win over San Diego in his last start on Friday.

"Kim was the difference and his velocity was deceptive," Milwaukee manager Ned Yost said. "The board had him at 88 mph, but from the dugout he seemed to be throwing 95."
