The Milwaukee Brewers (1-2) lost the series finale today at American Family Field to the Minnesota Twins (2-1), 8-2.
I just got done watching the game on record, and I thought Adrian Houser actually pitched a good game. Houser went five innings, allowing two runs on four hits and striking out four batters.
The bullpen on the other hand was no so great today, giving up six runs in four innings as a unit.
The problem today, much like yesterday, was the offense. In the loss yesterday and today, the offense failed to step up and get a hit with runners on base. Granted, they didn’t have a ton of opportunities in either game, but someone still needs to step up.
I think the offense has a very good chance of being really good this season. But we’ve seen this story before from the franchise.
In the two losses this year so far, for a majority of last years shortened season and even in the years prior to that, this is a team that goes through big stretches where they fail to get any big hits or consistently hit with runners on base. To accomplish the goals of what this team has in 2021, they need to start delivering when opportunity knocks.
The Brewers will travel to Chicago to play the Cubs (2-1) at Wrigley Field. First pitch is scheduled for 6:40 PM (Central Time) and will be televised on ESPN+.
You can also watch it on the MLB Extra Innings station since the major cable providers are allowing people to watch for free (for now) on there.
