It was the same script for the Milwaukee Brewers (17-14), just a different day. The Crew fell behind big early and fought back as they did the previous two nights, only to lose by a run with the tying run in scoring position in the ninth inning. Tonight’s final was a 5-4 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies (16-15).
Freddy Peralta (3-1) suffered his first loss of the season, going only four innings allowing five runs (all earned), allowing just four hits and three walks, but did strikeout eight batters.
Rasmussen, Suter and Boxberger pitched the last four innings and didn’t allow a hit.
Avisail Garcia went 4-for-4 at the plate tonight with three RBI.
Lorenzo Cain went 1-for-2 with three walks and two runs scored. Daniel Vogelbach also went 1-for-2 with two walks and a run scored.
Unfortunately, the rest of the team only had one hit, which was from Luke Maile who went 1-for-3.
Kolten Wong went 0-for-5 and Travis Shaw went 0-for-4.
Disappointing last few days for the Brew Crew, that’s all there is to say about it. Need to sharpen up the defense and also get some clutch hitting.
The Brewers will look to snap their 4-game losing streak tomorrow as they take on the Phillies in the series finale. First pitch is set for 12:05 PM (Central Time).
Brandon Woodruff (2-0, 1.80 ERA) will start for Milwaukee. Zack Wheeler (2-2, 3.49 ERA) will get the start for Philadelphia.
