All season long the Milwaukee Brewers have struggled to get good pitching so when they do they must take advantage of it. Friday and Saturday they got two good pitching performances and all they go to show for it was back to back 3-2 losses to the San Francisco Giants.
Yovani Gallardo pitched a good game going 6.0 innings giving up three earned runs and striking out six batters. Now with the Brewers offense if you cannot manage at least three runs for your pitchers something is wrong. Yes the Giants do have a very good pitching staff, but your at home and you are not going to beat many Major League Baseball teams if you only score two runs like the Brewers have done Friday and Saturday.
Prince Fielder did add to his RBI total with number 122, but it did not matter because the Brewers lost again. The Brewers fell five games below .500, which ties for the lowest they’ve been this season. The free fall will probably continue for the Brewers rest of the season as I see no end really in site for them.
