In an ugly contest, the Brewers fell behind early and wasted several opportunities to recover, stranding a runner on second or third in six different innings.

Manny Parra's line will make it look like he performed better than he did: he allowed just one earned run (three total) on five hits and three walks over five innings. He threw a first pitch strike to just seven of the 24 hitters he faced, and became just the fifth Brewer pitcher ever to get the loss in his first four appearances to start a season.

On the offensive side, Mike Cameron went 2-for-3 with a walk and two doubles, driving in a run and scoring one. Brad Nelson also went 0-for-4 filling in for Corey Hart and remains hitless on the season.
