Royals at Brewers

The Brewers opened the four game home-and-home series against the Royals with an 8-5 loss. The Royals jumped on Kyle Lohse for 3 runs in the first and added 2 more in the 5th. Jonathan Lucroy hit a 2 run double in the fifth and another run scoring double in a 3 run 9th inning that came up short.

Game 2 did not go any better as Matt Garza gave up 6 runs in 6.2 innings. Lucroy had another RBI in the 8th and Scooter Gennett hit a solo home run in the 9th, but it was too little too late.

The change of venue did not change the outcomes between these two teams. The Brewers took the early lead on Gennett’s run scoring triple in the 2nd inning. The Royals came back with 3 runs in the bottom of the inning, then scored 3 more in the fifth. Mike Fiers gave up all 6 of those runs and Jonathan Broxton gave up 4 runs in the 8th in the 10-2 loss.

Once again, the Royals jumped out to an early lead, scoring 3 runs in the first 2 innings. And once again, the Brewers were not able to come back. They made this one close, scoring 2 runs in the 5th, but not scoring any more. The Brewers lost their 6th game in a row, 3-2. Ned Yost became the Royals’ winningest manager with his 411th win.

The Brewers’ bats came alive early and often in Colorado, leading them to a 9-5 lead. Ryan Braun hit a 2 run home run and Aramis Ramirez added a solo shot in the 1st. The Brewers had a 6-0 lead in the 4th when the Rockies scored 3. The Rockies tacked on another run before the Brewers scored 3 more times in the 7th.

The bats cooled off again in game 2. Lohse had a better game, but he still gave up 3 runs and took his 9th loss. Adam Lind hit a solo home run in the 6th, but that was the only run scored in a 5-1 loss.

Matt Garza gave up 10 runs, 7 earned, in 5.1 innings as the Brewers lost again. The Brewers scored a run in 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th, but they gave up 3 in the 3rd and 4th and 4 in the 6th for a 10-4 loss.

Roster/Injury News

Carlos Gomez missed all 6 of the 7 games this week after playing in the final 2 games against the Nationals. He was the DH in Wednesday’s loss to the Royals. The Brewers are expecting him to play against the Mets after an off day on Monday.
