Milwaukee Brewers Get Swept in Philadelphia

The Milwaukee Brewers (17-15) fall to the Philadelphia Phillies (17-15) this afternoon, 2-0. The Brewers were swept in four games by the Phillies, with the losing streak at five games total now. Four straight ninth-inning rallies came up short.

My reaction in the ninth inning:

The Brewers offense had a grand total of three hits. Two of them came from pinch hitters (Lorenzo Cain and Avisail Garcia) and the only starter to record a hit was Billy McKinney.

Despite a few games where the offense has lit up the scoreboard, the offense seems to be performing just like they did in 2020….not very good.

Having said that, as far as I know, Andy Haines is regarded within the organization as doing a good job.

It’s the first time since September 11-14, 2008 that the Brewers have been swept in a four-game series in Philadelphia….the series that got Ned Yost fired.

Up Next:

The Brewers will travel to Florida to play the Miami Marlins (13-16) inside loanDepot Park.

Brent Suter (2-1, 2.70 ERA) will start tomorrow’s series opener for Milwaukee, which means it will be a bullpen day for the Crew.

Trevor Rogers (3-2, 1.91 ERA) will get the start for Miami.
