Kyle Lohse came within three outs of the Brewers' first complete game since April 2011 last night in a 4-1 win over the Nationals. A pitch count that soared to 103 through eight innings and the fact that the pitcher was due up second in the ninth kept the hurler in the dugout in the final frame. Francisco Rodriguez picked up the save.
Norichika Aoki put Milwaukee on the scoreboard first with a two-run single in the fifth. Logan Schafer's two-out, two-run triple put ‘The Crew’ up by four in the sixth inning.
