Yesterday's Results

Dodgers 14, Brewers 4

Considering where the Brewers were at the start of the week, a series split against the Dodgers seems like a great result. However, the last game of the series left a bitter taste in everyone's mouth. Despite throwing an immaculate inning, Mike Fiers didn't have a good day. He allowed five runs on five hits, five walks, and eight strikeouts. The bullpen didn't fare much better. Jeremy Jeffress allowed two runs in an inning, Rob Wooten allowed five runs in 1 2/3 innings, and Jonathan Broxton allowed two runs in 1/3 of an inning. Only Neal Cotts had a clean inning. On offense, Adam Lind hit his team-leading sixth home run and was the only Brewer with multiple hits. Gerardo Parra also knocked in two runs in the loss.
