SBNation Coverage

Jeff Suppan reminded us all that he's still Jeff Suppan tonight, allowing 14 baserunners and eight runs in 4.1 innings and taking the Brewers out of the game early for the third time in four nights.

From there, the bright spots were few and far between:

  • Jason Kendall had two hits, including a triple, and was hit by a pitch. 
  • Carlos Villanueva pitched well in relief, pitching two perfect innings and striking out four.
  • John Axford needed just seven pitches to retire the side in the ninth.

Those are your silver linings, I guess. Jody Gerut also came inches from a grand slam in the eighth inning, but was robbed at the wall.

With the loss, the Brewers dropped to 38-40 on the season at home, meaning they'll need to sweep the remaining three games in the series to avoid posting a losing record in 2009 at Miller Park.
