Boxscore

The Brewers won't win a whole lot of games when they only have three hits. As it happens, this game was not any different. The only Brewers run came on a Jonathan Lucroy home run in the seventh inning. Norichika Aoki and Sean Halton were the only other Milwaukee players with hits. Both players singled.

Despite that, the Brewers could have won the game had their defense been better. Two Juan Francisco throwing errors led to two unearned runs while the rest of the Brewers defense also looked lackadaisical.

Tom Gorzelanny and Jeremy Hefner put on quite a pitchers duel. Gorzelanny, despite pitching three days ago and this being his second start of the season, managed to go six innings while striking out eight hitters. He allowed eight hits and no walks. Hefner went seven innings, allowing two hits and a walk while striking out eight.

The Brewers take on the Cincinnati Reds next. Homer Bailey and Kyle Lohse face off tomorrow with first pitch scheduled for 7:10 CT.
