Boxscore

Coming into Monday, the Brewers had been on a roll. They had an eight-game winning streak, they had won 11 of their last 13 and everything was going pretty well.

I guess they're still on a roll, but now they have a one-game losing streak and have won just 11 of their last 14. Still pretty good, but not as good as before Monday's game.

Kyle Lohse was 2015 Kyle Lohse, allowing four runs in the first two innings and barely being able to get anybody out. Seriously, every out seemed like a lucky break. The Braves were hitting liners on nearly anything Lohse tossed up and it was a break that a few of them ended up being hit towards Brewers players. Lohse actually allowed eight hits over just the first two innings, that's how bad it was going.

Fortunately he managed to get it under control a bit and allowed just three more hits over his final three innings of work. Still, the damage was done. Gerardo Parra hit a home run in the first inning to put the Brewers on the board, and they got a run apiece in the fifth and sixth, but that wasn't enough to come back from the hole Lohse dug.

Parra, by the way, had a double to go along with his home run, raising his batting average to .311. He has been absolutely khrushing it in Khris Davis' absence, and the Brewers will have a heck of a time with Davis due back as soon as tomorrow. No other player reached base multiple times for the Brewers today.

The Brewers will look to avenge the loss tomorrow. First pitch is set for 7:10 CT.
