This Weekend's Results

Brewers 10, Nationals 3

Sometimes everything comes together in a game, and it ends up being a very nice game. Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and one RBI, Adam Lind and Elian Herrera also had multi-hit games, and Domingo Santana homered in his Brewers debut. Meanwhile, Jimmy Nelson was ok in 5.1 IP, allowing two runs. Kyle Lohse finished the game for his first career save.

Nationals 6, Brewers 1

All pitchers have bad days, and this was one of those for Taylor Jungmann. He only lasted four innings as he allowed five runs on seven hits and three runs, though he still struck out five in the loss. Meanwhile, the Brewers offense was held in check by Joe Ross, who limited the Brewers to a run on a Khris Davis home run.

Nationals 9, Brewers 5

While Jungmann had a bad day Saturday night, Matt Garza was worse on Sunday. He allowed seven runs on eight hits and six walks. It was the first time a Brewers starting pitcher allowed six walks in a game since May 14, 2012. The Brewers offense did manage five runs, four of those coming off of home runs from Jonathan Lucroy, Scooter Gennett, and Khris Davis. However, it was not enough to overcome Garza's bad start.
