Brewers Fall Behind Early, Come Back And Fall Behind Again In 7-6 Loss To Dodgers

W: Wil Ledezma (1-0)
L: Marco Estrada (1-2)
S: Angel Guzman (1)

HR: Brooks Conrad (2), Andre Ethier (2)

Yesterday Norichika Aoki had three hits and the Brewers won. Today no Brewers had three hits and they lost. Tomorrow someone should try for three hits again.

Early on today it looked like it was going to be just one of those days. Chris Narveson allowed three runs in the first inning to allow the Dodgers to run out to a quick lead, but settled down from there. All told he allowed the aforementioned three runs on seven hits over four innings, walking one and striking out none.

The Brewers, meanwhile, scored two runs in the second on Brooks Conrad's home run and another in the third on Carlos Gomez's RBI single to tie the game. The Dodgers untied it with Andre Ethier's two run homer off Marco Estrada, though, and that was that. The Brewers rallied late to get within a run in the eighth inning, but fell short.

Nyjer Morgan had two hits today, both doubles, and reached base a third time via walk. He entered the game hitting .161/.212/.290 this spring so that was a nice turnaround for him.

The Brewers have sixteen games remaining this spring, with the first one coming tomorrow when they travel to Salt River Fields to face the Diamondbacks at 3:10.
