Just when you thought the Brewers had found rock bottom, they went ahead and got swept at home by the Reds.

Things started off pretty well for the Brewers today against Justin Lehr, as they scored four runs in the first inning on Prince Fielder's 35th home run and Mike Cameron's RBI double. Dave Bush no-hit the Reds into the fourth inning, then all of a sudden the wheels came off.

Six straight Reds reached base off of Bush and Mark DiFelice in the fifth inning as the Reds scored six times to take the lead. Justin Lehr, who was nearly bounced from the game in the first inning, held the Brewers scoreless until the eighth inning, when Mike Cameron hit a solo home run.

All told, Bush allowed five earned runs on four hits and three walks in 4.2 innings, picking up his fifth loss.
