Following tonight's loss, the Brewers are on pace to go 65-97, and it's possible they'll find 97 different ways to lose.

Tonight, Dave Bush gave up his patented big inning in the first, allowing three earned runs as the Marlins hit for the cycle in the inning. After that, though, he only allowed three more hits while completing six for his sixth quality start of the season. Those innings gave the Brewers enough time to get back into the game with home runs from Prince Fielder and Corey Hart in a three run seventh.

Unfortunately, that was as close as the Brewers would get. Trevor Hoffman entered a tie game in the seventh and allowed three hits on three runs and two walks. The Brewers scored a run in the eighth and brought Prince Fielder to the plate as the potential tying run with two outs in the ninth, but Fielder grounded out to first to end the game.

The Brewers are now 2-9 when Dave Bush starts.
