Yesterday's Results

Brewers 4, Reds 2

The eight-game losing streak finally came to an end yesterday. Kyle Lohse finally broke out of his funk by pitching seven innings yesterday, allowing only two runs, both on a Brandon Phillips home run. Meanwhile, Adam Lind and Aramis Ramirez both hit solo home runs, and Jean Segura drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning. The Brewers would tack on an insurance run in the eighth when Ryan Braun stole third, Kristopher Negron missed the throw, and Braun was able to head home.
