Brewers Drop 6th Straight; Blow Lead in Loss to Cards
Milwaukee held a 6-0 lead after three innings, but St. Louis rallied past the Crew with seven unanswered runs to take the series opening game 7-6 Friday night at Miller Park. The Brewers (52-42) opened the game with three runs in the first capped off by a 2-RBI double by Khris Davis. Milwaukee then added three more in the second with a 2-RBI triple by Scooter Gennett followed by a RBI triple by Ryan Braun to lead 6-0. Then the wheels fell off, the Brewers would go scoreless over the final seven innings on the way to their 10th loss in the last 11 games. Meanwhile St. Louis (51-43) would tag Brewers starter Yovanni Gallardo (5-5) with home runs by Matt Adams in the fourth inning, Kolten Wong and Jhonny Peralta in the sixth to cut the lead to 6-5. Gallardo would then exit going 5 1/3 innings giving up five runs all earned on seven hits. The Cardinals would then tie the game at six later in the inning on a run scoring fielder's choice by Oscar Taveras off reliever Zach Duke after Rob Wooten loaded the bases. The Brewers then went to Francisco Rodriquez in the top of the 9th inning where he gave up a two out solo home run to Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday as St. Louis grabbed a 7-6 lead. Milwaukee put the lead off runner on in the bottom half of the inning after an Aramis Ramirez single but closer Trevor Rosenthal was able to strike out Braun and Davis before inducing a ground out by pinch hitter Rickie Weeks to pick up his 28th save of the year. Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke was ejected in the 9th inning for arguing balls and strikes as the Cardinals closed to within one game of the Brewers for the NL Central lead. Milwaukee and St. Louis are back in action tomorrow afternoon for game two of the three game series with first pitch slated for 3:10 p.m.
