Someone check the visitors' clubhouse in Cincinnati. The Brewers might have left their bats there.
It took the Brewers six innings to get a runner to second base tonight as Cole Hamels, Jose Contreras and Ryan Madson shut out for the Brewers for the first time since July. The Crew managed just three hits, all singles, and three walks.
Chris Capuano was good for five innings tonight, allowing a lone run (that should not have been earned) on four hits in five innings, walking two and striking out four. He threw 80 pitches, and had a runner in scoring position with less than two outs in three of his five innings. Kameron Loe and John Axford combined to pitch three scoreless innings in relief.
This was the Brewers' eleventh shutout loss of the season, and their first 1-0 loss since July 1, 2009, when they were shut out by Johan Santana and the Mets.
