The Brewers got some help back in their lineup yesterday with the return of another player. Prior to yesterday's game, Khris Davis was activated off of the 15-day DL and David Goforth was sent back to Colorado Springs to clear a roster spot. Davis had been gone for around five weeks, so the recovery time is right at what we expected for him. However, despite his return, he may not have a starting spot anymore. Craig Counsell noted before last night's game that because of his hot play, Gerardo Parra will remain the starting left fielder for now. It could be a temporary position for Parra, who has been in several trade rumors recently and could be on the move by the end of the month. If that happens, Davis would reclaim his starting spot in the lineup again.

Yesterday's Results

Braves 4, Brewers 3

It's hard to figure out the Brewers right now. After posting an eight-game winning streak (seven of those coming on the road), they returned home and lose two straight games. Their home record of 15-28 is the worst in baseball. They have allowed 70 home runs at home. Tyler Cravy did his job in his second start of the year, allowing three runs in six innings of work. Jonathan Lucroy and Adam Lind each hit solo home runs, and Carlos Gomez had an RBI as well. However, they just couldn't put together enough offense to support Cravy.
