Maybe the Brewers should have told Ryan Braun to save a homer or two for the rest of this week's games.

Braun put on an amazing power display Monday night, becoming the first player ever to hit three homers in a game at Petco Park in San Diego, but the Brewers haven't hit a home run since. The streak is at three games and counting.

Tonight's game was the ninth time they've been held homerless in 2012, and the win improved them to 2-7 in those games. Tonight was the first time they've scored more than three runs without going deep:

Date Opponent Runs
Tonight Giants 6*
May 2 Padres 0
May 1 Padres 0
April 29 Cardinals 3*
April 27 Cardinals 1
April 22 Rockies 1
April 19 Dodgers 3
April 14 Braves 1
April 12 Cubs 0

An asterisk above indicates a game the Brewers won.

The Brewers were held homerless 60 times in 2011, and went 26-34 in those contests.
