Yesterday I wrote about goose eggs. Apparently I should have waited until today. Today, Milwaukee put up a goose egg in each and every inning (as opposed to just in eight of nine innings) as they dropped their second in a row to the Houston Astros, 5-0.
Bud Norris was nearly untouchable giving up just three hits and three walks, while striking out 11 in 7.2 innings. Chris Narveson took the loss for the Brewers, although he did not pitch badly. He gave up one run in the second inning and then surrendered a three-run homer to Carlos Lee in the sixth inning.
The Brewers will try to find their offense in Atlanta on Monday when they begin a four-game set with the Braves. The series will present some interesting story lines. Yovani Gallardo will try to turn things around on Monday; Nyjer Morgan will be activated on Tuesday; and Zack Greinke will pitch on Wednesday.
Astros 5, Brewers 0
