Boxscore

Today was not a good day.

Nothing really went right for the Brewers -- Yovani Gallardo was ineffective, then hurt. The offense had a whopping five hits. The defense had two errors. It was a whole whopping lot of not-good.

Gallardo lasted 3.1 innings before leaving the game with a sprained ankle. He's currently listed as day-to-day though I would expect the team to have more information on him tomorrow. If he's forced to go on the DL, the Brewers would likely give a call up to Jimmy Nelson or Mike Fiers, both of whom have been pitching extremely well for Triple-A Nashville.

Not that Gallardo's injury really hurt the team all that much today. In those 3.1 innings, he had already allowed four earned runs on four hits and three walks. Thus continues the downfall of Gallardo, who has now given up 15 earned runs in 19.1 May innings.

The first three runs all came in the third inning. Andrelton Simmons led off with a homer and Justin Upton added two more runs on a single later in the frame. The Braves tagged on another in the fourth when Scooter Gennett committed a fielding error, then one more in the fifth on a Justin Upton homer.

Those five runs were more than enough for the Braves. Four more than enough. The Brewers had absolutely no idea what to do against Julio Teheran, who went a full nine shutdown innings while allowing just six hits and two walks. He also struck out eight. Jonathan Lucroy had another nice game, at least, with two hits, including a double, and a walk. No other Brewers hitter reached base multiple times.
