The Brewers fell behind right away after a home run by Curtis Granderson, and it never got better from there. Wily Peralta struggled and allowed five runs in five innings in his start. In addition, things got worse for the Brewers as Carlos Gomez was hit in the head with a pitch. He escaped with only a bruise on his head and avoided a concussion.
