The Brewers bats seem to have been left behind on this road trip as they struggled heavily against Arizona.

Boxscore

In a four game series against the Diamondbacks, the Brewers scored a total of five runs. In a way, it's a bit surprising that they only won one of the four games, given that fact.

Sunday, of course, was not that one win as Jeremy Hellickson limited Milwaukee's offense to just just four hits over six innings, though he did also give up three walks. The Arizona bullpen did the rest, allowing just one walk over the remaining three innings. Gerardo Parra (single, walk), Ryan Braun (single, walk) and Martin Maldonado (two walks) all reached base twice.

Matt Garza pitched reasonably well, but finished with three earned in 5.2 innings of work. He gave up seven hits and three walks, but struck out five. Normally, that's good enough to give a team a chance to win the game, but not the way the Brewers are hitting.

Meanwhile, Khris Davis had maybe his worst day as a major league player. Davis struck out four times, took a bad route on one ball early on that I noticed, and had an easy line-drive pop out of his glove. He also left six runners on base when at the plate.

The Brewers continue their stretch of late games as they head to San Francisco for three games against the defending World Series champs. First pitch is tomorrow at 9:15 ET.
