Dave Bush supplied another quality start tonight (his fourth of 2010), but the Brewers dropped to 1-6 in his starts this season. All told he pitched six innings and allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks, striking out three. He threw 102 pitches, 65 of which went for strikes.
Even if the Brewer bullpen had managed to hold the Braves at three runs, though, the Braunless offense wasn't up to the challenge. They had twelve baserunners (on six hits and six walks) against Tim Hudson but managed just one run off of him on an RBI single for Alcides Escobar. The Brewers scored two in the seventh to close the gap, but nothing more.
With Braun out of the lineup, Jim Edmonds batted third and played center field. He went 2-for-5 and had one of just three Brewer extra base hits, a double.
Now you'd better go get some sleep - these two teams will meet to finish the series in a little more than 12 hours.
