At least interleague play is over.

The Brewers kept it close in Mike Burns' first major league start, but couldn't quite get over the hump. Burns allowed four earned runs on six hits and three walks in 5.2 innings, narrowly missing the second consecutive Brewer quality start.

All four Brewer runs were pushed across by three home runs: solo shots from Braun and Fielder and a two-run shot from Casey McGehee. The Brewers 1-4 hitters went 5-for-14 and hit three home runs, but 5-8 went 0-for-13 with one walk.
