In Yesterday’s loss to the Rockies Jungmann gave up three homers as the Brewers fell 6-5

In just 4 1/3 innings of work, Taylor Jungmann managed to give up three home runs along with six hits, six runs along with two walks and three strikeouts. Afterwards, Jungmann commented “Didn’t get a whole lot of anything accomplished today,” he said. The performance is the only blip on Jungmann’s spring training performance as thus far he’s had solid outings in all of his previous outings.

Jungmann felt that it was his first walk of the game that began the downward spiral, saying after the game

“I started off feeling pretty good,” Jungmann said. “I’ve told you guys before, what I’ve been trying to cut down on is getting two quick outs then kind of going into a funk, walking a guy on four pitches.

“Once I did that, I kind of fell out of my rhythm and it just went downhill from there.”

Skipper Craig Counsell also commented on the outing after the game saying “He was just behind in the count,” said manager Craig Counsell. “When Taylor’s in the strike zone, it tends to go pretty well. When he loses the strike zone, like any pitcher, it’s hard. Getting behind in the counts hurt him.”

As a result of the game, Jungmann saw his ERA balloon up to 4.97 from 1.08.  The Brewers started off strongly, with Scooter Gennett continuing his red-hot hitting with a double, followed by a wild throw off a Lucroy hit and then a pair of walks to give the Brewers a pair of scores. Nolan Arenado and Gerardo Para hit back to back home runs for the Brew Crew as well.

The Brewers have today off but play again tomorrow  at 3:05 CT against KC. Wily Peralta will get the start, who he will face has yet to be determined.
