The Milwaukee Brewers (20-20) had three hits in a 5-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves (19-20) tonight at American Family Field.
The Brewers are in an epic 102-game offensive slump dating back to the start of the 2020 season. They’re swinging at balls, watching strikes that are right down the middle of the plate. You absolutely can’t blame this on the Yelich injury. I’m not in the camp of firing a coach. Maybe highly paid pro’s should start doing what they’re paid to do … hit!
I understand the fans wanting Andy Haines to be fired. But what if the team doesn’t hit under a new hitting coach? Fire him too? I don’t understand why fans coddle these athletes that get paid handsomely and don’t hold them accountable. Oh, and just a side note: Haines was with the Brewers in 2019.
Sorry for the disturbingly reasonable take.
The Brewers were 17-10 on May 1st, tied for the best record in the National League.
Since then, they’ve gone 3-10 while hitting .202 overall and .143 with runners in scoring position. The Brewers have scored 34 total runs (2.62 per game) during this 13-game stretch.
The Brewers and Braves conclude the three-game series tomorrow at American Family Field. First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 PM (Central Time).
Freddy Peralta (3-1, 2.77 ERA) will start for Milwaukee.
Huascar Ynoa (4-1, 2.23 ERA) will start for Atlanta.
