Yesterday's Results

Reds 6, Brewers 1

The downward spiral continued for the Brewers yesterday. Wily Peralta was good for five innings, then got tagged for six runs in his last two innings yesterday. The offense managed only three hits and a walk. Ryan Braun kept it from being a shutout with his first home run of the season, but that was the only highlight from another dismal game.

The Brewers have hit rock bottom.

What we thought was bad before somehow became worse last night. Not only did the Brewers lose their sixth straight game, but two injuries over the course of the day further depleted the team. First, earlier in the day we learned that Scooter Gennett cut his hand while showering following Sunday's game, needed stitches and potentially could need a DL stint if it prevents him from playing beyond a few days. Then, in yesterday's game, Jonathan Lucroy left the game in the sixth inning after taking a foul ball off of his foot., Following the game, it was announced that he would go on the 15-day DL with a broken toe, and Juan Centeno was being called up to fill his roster spot. So far, very little has gone well for the team. The question now is where they go from here.
