One can complain about the Brewers offense tonight but the pitching was better than expected. Chris Capuano, sadly, was involved in a 23rd consecutive loss and was pulled with 2 outs in the 4th. The fact that he pitched in the major leagues at all should be commended. He's come back from a lot and this wasn't the best pitching matchup for his return. Capuano's downfall tonight was doubles; he gave up 4. Kameron Loe, Zach Braddock, and Trevor Hoffman(!) prevented any more runs from scoring.

Tonight's first run was scored by Jonathan Lucroy in a show of good old station-to-station, sacrificing play. The second run was scored in a burst of ninth-inning rally. The Brewers left 13 runners on base tonight.
