Box Score

Win Expectancy Graph

No relief from the losing streak came in this game.

We all knew that Jimmy Nelson wouldn't dominate right away with the Brewers, but we were hoping for something better than what we got. The Cardinals stormed out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning, and built that lead to 6-0 by the third inning. Nelson got hit hard, only pitching 4 1/3 innings, allowing a total of 8 runs (6 earned).

Meanwhile, the Brewers offense was still missing, and it didn't help that they were up against Adam Wainwright. They only managed two baserunners in the first four innings (one of those came when Carlos Gomez was hit by a pitch). Lyle Overbay and Jeff Bianchi hit back-to-back doubles to put the Brewers on the board, but by then, the Cardinals already had an 8-1 lead. They got another run thanks to Ryan Braun & Khris Davis, but that was all they could get in the game.

The Brewers can at least enter the All-Star break with a win on Sunday. Carlos Martinez and Wily Peralta match up in the final game of the series. First pitch is at 1:10 pm.
