Milwaukee Brewers (14-10) fell to the Miami Marlins (11-13) this afternoon, 6-2, inside American Family Field, losing the rubber match of the series.
To summarize: Zack Godley, making his first appearance as a Brewer, and Eric Yardley didn’t have their best days on the mound. And other than a Kolten Wong home run and Luis Urias going 2-for-3, the offense was pretty much quiet all day.
There was one mind boggling “obstruction” or “interference” call that went against the Brewers today, which you can see here.
It may have been the worst call I’ve ever seen. Not the most impactful, but the worst Major League call.
Craig Counsell postgame said, “It was a terrible call. I have no idea what Marty was trying to make up there, what he saw. It’s even worse looking at the replay.”
Kolten Wong on the call: “It just shouldn’t have been called. It didn’t make any sense and it’s one of those things where that play definitely changed the game.”
In other Brewers news, Godley is going to the IL and lefty Eric Lauer is coming up to start tomorrow against the Dodgers.
Jacob Nottingham was claimed off waivers by the Seattle Mariners. The Brewers DFA’d Nottingham last week.
The Brewers will host the Los Angeles Dodgers for a four-game series starting tomorrow. First pitch for tomorrow’s game is at 6:40 PM (Central Time).
