The Milwaukee Brewers (29-26) fall to the Detroit Tigers (23-32), 10-7, tonight inside American Family Field.
It’s the first time since 2007 that the Brewers hit five home runs in a game and lost.
Tyrone Taylor and Kolten Wong each hit two home runs and Luis Urias hit a solo shot.
Keston Hiura was 0-for-4 at the plate today. It’s bad, folks. He is now 1-for-23 since his return from the minors with 13 strikeouts. He’s 0 for his last 20 with 11 strikeouts. Hiura’s average for the season sits at .127 right now.
I’m beginning to think Hiura might be a AAAA player. Going to the minors doesn’t help, because he can hit there. He’s missing fastballs right down the middle. His problems seem more mental than physical.
“We have to evaluate it,” Manager Craig Counsell said postgame about another rough outing for Hiura. Sounds like decision time again.
This was not a good day for the pitching staff, for both clubs really.
Counsell said that there were several relievers who needed the night off after heavy workloads in recent days. That’s why Houser had bullpen duty.
Milwaukee has an open date tomorrow, before beginning a 4-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks (19-36) on Thursday.
Counsell said that Brett Anderson will start on Thursday. After that, it should be back to Peralta, Woodruff, Burnes.
