The Milwaukee Brewers couldn’t keep its one game winning streak alive as the Crew fell to the Atlanta Braves 5-2 on Tuesday night.
Kyle Lohse pitched very well for Milwaukee, but didn’t receive enough offensive support. Lohse went seven innings, giving up three runs on five hits, including two home runs to Freddie Freeman. Jason Heyward also homered for the Braves. Lohse also struck out eight.
For the Braves, starting pitcher Alex Wood was as good as advertised. Besides giving up a home run to Carlos Gomez to lead off the bottom of the first inning, Wood kept the Brewers in check. Like Lohse, Wood lasted seven innings, allowing only one run.
