This Weekend's Results

Dodgers 3, Brewers 2

Jimmy Nelson made a great start on Friday, allowing no earned runs in seven innings of work. He didn't allow a hit until the sixth inning and struck out six. However, an error by Hernan Perez in the seventh started a Dodgers rally, allowing them to score three unearned runs and hit Jimmy Nelson with a tough loss. The Brewers scored both of their runs in the fifth inning after two wild pitches.

Brewers 7, Dodgers 1

Taylor Jungmann's rookie season continues to dazzle everyone. On Saturday night, he had the best game of his short MLB career, holding the Dodgers to one run in a complete game. Meanwhile, Dodgers starter Brandon Beachy only made it four innings, allowing three runs, all coming in the third inning thanks to a bases-clearing double from Carlos Gomez. The Brewers would add on four more runs for insurance, but they didn't need any more help as Jungmann kept the Dodgers in check.

Dodgers 4, Brewers 3

It was another comeback for the Dodgers on Sunday afternoon. Kyle Lohse pitched decently, allowing two runs in five innings. Home runs by Ryan Braun and Hernan Perez built a lead for the Brewers, and Perez added to it with an RBI groundout in the fourth inning. However, it was the bullpen that couldn't hold the lead this time. Jeremy Jeffress allowed a baserunner to start the eighth, and then Will Smith allowed a two-run home run in relief of Jeffress to give up the lead.
