DENVER (AP) - Jason Hammel pitched 7 1-3 sharp innings and brought in a run with a squeeze bunt, lifting the injury-riddled Colorado Rockies to a 2-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.
The right-hander ran his streak of scoreless innings to a career-best 25 1-3, proving to be a nice complement to Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez.
Hammel (5-3) also contributed offensively in the absence of Troy Tulowitzki, who will be out for about six weeks after breaking his left wrist when he was hit by a pitch in Minnesota on Thursday.
Hammel finished 1 for 2 with a double and a well-placed squeeze bunt in the second for just his second career RBI.
