Well, all good things eventually have to come to an end. The Brewers unbeaten streak officially came to an end as they took their first loss of the season. Jungmann gave up a run in 1 1/3 innings, and the bullpen didn't fare much better with Chris Capuano, Blaine Boyer, Tyler Thornburg, and Jacob Barnes each also allowed runs. Ramon Fores had two hits in the game, and Yadiel Rivera drove in the lone run.
