Gary Glover looks to bounce back from the worst outing of his career as the Milwaukee Brewers try to complete a sweep of their three-game series with the Colorado Rockies.

Glover, seeking his first win since April 29 against the Reds, has lost consecutive starts—including a 7-1 defeat at Minnesota on Friday night.

Against the Twins, he lasted just 1 1-3 innings, allowing seven hits, four runs and a walk without a strikeout in the shortest outing of his career.

“I’ve definitely got to make some changes,” Glover said. “Nothing drastic, but I’ve got to do a little something.”

His previous shortest start also came against the Twins. While pitching for the Chicago White Sox on Oct. 6, 2001, he worked two innings and gave up five runs and six hits, including two homers, en route to a 6-5 loss.

Another strong game from Carlos could help. Lee drove in four runs, three on a first-inning homer in the Milwaukee’s 6-1 victory over Colorado on Tuesday night.

It helped Victory Santos end his four-game losing streak. Santos was 0-3 this month despite a 3.00 ERA and four straight quality starts.

“I think that Victor has pitched the best games on this staff right now,” Lee said. “I think he’s got the worst run support for our team. And it was nice to go out there and give him the lead and let him relax a little bit and go to work.”

The win was the Brewers’ 11th in the last 14 at Miller Park.

The Rockies, who have lost four of five, will counter with struggling right-hander Jamey Wright.

Wright has lost his last two starts, including a 9-4 defeat at Pittsburgh on Friday night. Against the Pirates, he allowed four runs and six hits over six innings, striking out four and walking three.

Command has been a problem for Wright recently, issuing eight bases-on-balls in his last 12 innings.
