Brewers Lose Again After Blowing Big Lead

The Milwaukee Brewers jumped out to an early 6-0 lead after two innings, but failed to produce any more runs as the St. Louis Cardinals would score seven unanswered and win 7-6 Friday.

What looked like an early one sided contest turned into a nail biter down the stretch. The Cardinals scored two runs in the fourth and four in the sixth to tie the game. The score would remain tied until the top of the ninth when Matt Holliday hit a home run off Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez.

The Brewers would score first with three runs in the first inning capped off by an Aramis Ramirez sacrifice fly and a Khris Davis two-run double. Then in the second three more runs came around to score when Scooter Gennett hit a two-run triple and then scored when Ryan Braun tripled a few batters later.

Gennett led the offensive attack with three hits, two runs batted in and two runs scored. Ramirez added two hits and Ryan Braun, out of the five spot in the lineup, had two hits. Total, the Brewers had 12 hits.

Cardinals starting pitcher Joe Kelly made his first start since coming off the disabled list and was tagged for six runs on seven hits in three innings pitched. He would take a no-decision.

Entering Friday, Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo had a career (1-11) record against St. Louis. Despite the run support, Gallardo struggled with command giving up five runs on seven hits in 5 1/3 innings for a no-decision.

Zach Duke and Will Smith pitched well out of the bullpen to keep the game tied before Rodriguez came on and took the loss.

With the loss the lead in the NL-Central is down to 1 game and lost 10 out of their last 11 games. The Brewers will turn to their number one prospect in Jimmy Nelson to break the streak. Nelson picked up his first big league win back in May in Miami throwing 5 2/3 innings of shutout baseball.  He will face a tough opponent in Adam Wainwright, the Cardinals ace (11-4, 1.79 ERA). First pitch is scheduled for 3:10pm.
