The Brewers lost their fourth straight game tonight, managing just one run on four hits against Bronson Arroyo. Manny Parra deserved better, he allowed just three runs on three hits in six innings, striking out four and walking four. The two run home run he allowed to Jerry Hairston in the third was the deciding factor.
