The Milwaukee Brewers lost for a fourth-straight time, this one a 5-2 defeat to the St. Louis Cardinals this afternoon.
The Brewers offense failed to show up except for a Eric Thames solo home run in the first inning. The Brewers managed just three hits the rest of the way off of starter Adam Wainwright, who picked up his second win of the season.
The Brewers had the bases loaded with two out in the Top of the ninth trailing 5-2, but Christian Yelich struck out to end the game.
For the series, Milwaukee averaged just 3.3 runs per game and a bases loaded walk in the ninth inning today was the first run the Brewers scored via something other than a home run since April 17. That has played a part of why the team has lost seven of their last eight games.
Jhoulys Chacin got the loss today, going just four innings and allowing four runs on five hits. He dropped to 2-3 on the season with his ERA ballooning to 6.35.
Milwaukee is now 13-13 on the season, and the four-straight losses is the most for the club since losing six-straight heading into the All-Star Break last July.
The Brewers will now head to New York to face the Mets in a three-game series starting on Friday.
