(Tough Luck) Loss: Matt Garza

Save: Craig Kimbrel

HR: Chris Johnson 1 (1)

Boxscore

Matt Garza got off to a great start in his Brewers debut with a perfect inning including 2 strikeouts. He would keep a no-hitter into the 7th inning before giving up a 2-out solo home run to Chris Johnson. Garza would return for another clean inning to bring his final line to 90 pitches in 8 innings with 1 earned run, 2 hits, 1 walk, and 7 strikeouts.

As a consolation prize, Garza's no-hitter lasted 2 outs longer than Aaron FREAKING Harang's did as Logan Schafer got the Brewers first hit leading off in the 7th inning. Harang would get pulled later in the inning as the Brewers threatened with runners at the corners and two outs. Luis Avilan ended that threat by inducing a ground out from Rickie Weeks. Before you throw rotten tomatoes at him, you should know that Jonathan Lucroy popped up in the previous at-bat.

Will Smith started the 9th and gave up a walk and a base hit but also got two strike outs. With runners at first and second and Justin Upton coming to the plate, Ron Roenicke opted to go with Brandon Kintzler. The move worked out as Upton popped out to end the inning.

The Braves sent Craig Kimbrel out for the save and that's exactly what happened. The Brewers lose in a 2 hit shutout started by Aaron Harang and drop to a 1-2 record. At least Thursday is an off day so we have 2 days to let that sink in. The Brewers return to action on Friday at 1:05 pm CT as Marco Estrada faces off against the Red Sox and Jake Peavy.
