Brewers Losing Streak Stands At Four After Losing To Twins 7-3


No matter what the Milwaukee Brewers do these days they seem to not have an answer for the Minnesota Twins or their problems playing at home. Over the weekend Miller Park took on a lot of rain and some damage was done, but on the field it was the Twins who did the damage to the Brewers. Minnesota got to Jeff Suppan early with timely two-out hits by Joe Crede, Carlos Gomez and Brendan Harris to drive in six of their seven runs and claim a 7-3 victory over the Brewers. It was the fourth straight loss for the Brewers who were swept over the weekend at Detroit.

In the first inning the Brewers were able to get two runs back on a Mike Cameron single as Suppan gave up three in the first inning which put the Brewers in the hole. The problem was the Brewers would only score one more run the rest of the game. Jeff Suppan only lasted five innings as the Brewers did not want to use their bullpen any longer then they had to so he was kept in as long as possible.

In other news Dave Bush was put on the disabled list with a tricep injury which could explain his 0-4 record and his struggles of late. The Brewers called up RHP Mike Burns to take his turn in the rotation so maybe Burns will give the Brewers a few quality start which they really need right now.
