Rockies spring training recap: Dakota Hudson serves up three homers to Brewers

Brewers 10, Rockies 1
At American Family Fields

On the mound: Dakota Hudson, pegged as Colorado’s fifth starter, was not particularly sharp in his fifth and final Cactus League start, allowing four runs (three earned) over five innings. The right-hander served up three solo home runs and seven hits total. Hudson finished his spring with a 4.20 ERA with seven walks and 13 strikeouts over 15 innings. Hudson is scheduled to take the mound next Monday at Wrigley Field in Chicago vs. the Cubs. … Right-handed reliever Nick Mears gave up three runs on three hits in one-third of an inning. His spring ERA is 8.22.

At the plate: Colorado’s offense didn’t do much Monday, save for catcher Jacob Stallings, who hit 2 for 2, including a double and a walk. He’s hit safely in four of his last six games, going 6 for 16 (.375). … Catcher Daniel Cope, called up from the minors for the game, hit his first homer in a Cactus League game.

Prospect watch: No. 1 prospect Adael Amador was called up for the game and started at second base. He went 0 for 4, and his average is just .200. But manager Bud Black said the club has been impressed with the 20-year-old’s patient at-bats, ability to draw walks and poise.

Up next: Brewers at Rockies, 1:10 p.m. Tuesday (2:10 p.m. MDT). Cactus League finale.

Rockies probable pitchers: RHP Ryan Feltner, RHP Victor Vodnik, RHP John Curtiss, RHP Matt Koch.
