Sometimes you stay up late and it's a good decision. Sometimes it's not. Tonight was the latter.

Randy Wolf deserves some credit for keeping the Brewers in the game tonight, but he clearly did not have his best stuff. He allowed a two run homer to Matt Kemp in the first and, while he didn't allow any more runs after that, he seemed to be walking on a tightrope all night. He allowed the leadoff man to reach in the third, fourth and fifth innings and the Dodgers left the bases loaded in the fourth. All told, he pitched 5.1 innings and allowed the aforementioned two runs on five hits and four walks, striking out two. He needed 119 pitches to record 16 outs.

Once Wolf departed the Brewers got an excellent outing from Sergio Mitre, who pitched 1.2 scoreless innings while allowing a hit and a walk. He was followed to the mound by Mike McClendon, who allowed a run while pitching the eighth.

In the end it didn't matter, though, because the Brewer bats remained lifeless on the road. They managed six hits and three walks against Hiroki Kuroda and the Dodger bullpen, but failed to score for the fourth time this season. All four shutouts have been on the road.

Six different Brewers had one hit tonight. Randy Wolf was one of them (his double was the Brewers' only extra base hit), as was Jonathan Lucroy, who singled to extend his hitting streak to eight games.
