Well after a sweep of the Cleveland Indians earlier in the week the Milwaukee Brewers now know how it feels to get swept as the Detroit Tigers turn that trick this weekend. Tigers Brandon Inge hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning and Justin Verlander pitched extremely well for the Detroit Tigers who stopped Milwaukee 3-2. Yovani Gallardo pitched well and the home run to Inge was his only mistake, but it cost him and the Brewers the win.
Casey McGehee hit a home run in the first inning to give the Brewers an early 1-0 lead. Craig Counsell lead the eighth off with a home run , but the Brewers could get not closer rest of the day. The Brewers could only manage five hits off of Verlander and so far he has the Brewers number. I bet they are hoping they do not have to see him anytime soon.
This loss hurts as it knocks Milwaukee out of first place and now we stand one game back. The one thing that has hurt the Brewers this year is we have more wins on the road then we have at home and that should not happen. Up next for Milwaukee is Minnesota which we have struggled against.
