What We Learned: Losing streak hits four in a row

The Brewers lost their fourth in a row yesterday after a strong start to the spring. We discuss that and more in today's What We Learned.

Yesterday’s Results

Giants 3, Brewers 1

This is what we signed up for in 2016, isn't it? It's going to be one of those years where there are a few highs (like the 5-game unbeaten streak to start the spring), but the lows are also going to hit, and they will hit hard. Jimmy Nelson struggled in his two innings of work, though he was encouraged by the start. The Brewers also only managed three hits, and Jonathan Villar drove in the lone run.

One of those was Ryan Braun getting a standing ovation after returning from his PED suspension, asking how parents can explain that to their kids. Derek responded to those comments in a post yesterday, explaining exactly how parents can explain what Braun did to their kids.
