Barnes starts for Anderson as Brewers drop 11-4 decision to Rockies
MILWAUKEE - Chase Anderson broke open a blister on his pitching hand during warmup tosses Wednesday night, starting a pitching chain reaction that led to an 11-4 defeat at the hands of the Colorado Rockies at Miller Park.
Anderson, the scheduled starting pitcher, had to be scratched and replaced with Jacob Barnes, who gave up three runs in an inning of work. Corbin Burnes, who had arrived to Milwaukee to be activated tomorrow, joined the team early and pitched two innings in the loss.
Anderson is being placed on the 10-day injured list. Burnes will join the Brewers bullpen, since the signing of Gio Gonzalez gives the Brewers five healthy starters even with Anderson out.
Mike Moustakas homered for the Brewers, who lost for the first time on this homestand.
