It seems that the Milwaukee Brewers are struggling and finding a way to stop it is up to manager Ken Macha. Dave Bush started for the Brewers and really did not pitch to bad, but took the loss thanks to an offense that has struggled to put runs on the board. Last night the Brewers got an early 2-0 lead with three doubles in the third inning. That sounds great except the only problem is that’s all the runs the Brewers would score all game.
Bush gave up a two out solo homer to Troy Tulowitzki in the fourth inning and three straight doubles in the fifth inning gave the Rockies a 3-2 lead. The also would get a run in the seventh inning which they did not need as the Brewers could muster no more offense. Ken Macha is going to give the day off to J.J. Hardy hitting .223 this season, Corey Hart .239 and Bill Hall .205 who are hitting some very horrible numbers.
I would not panic right now as the Brewers are struggling and still at the top of the division right now. The bad part is they could be getting a big lead, but losing these type of games hurt. I guess losing close games is much better then getting blown away. Today the Brewers send Yovani Gallardo to the mound to try and stop the losing streak.
