The good news: After putting up zeros in fourteen consecutive innings, the Brewers’ offense finally got on the board in the fifth inning of Thursday night’s game against the Braves. The bad news: it was their only run of the night and they gave up two.
Milwaukee dropped its sixth straight game on Thursday night, 2-1, to the Atlanta Braves. The losing streak includes a four-game sweep by the Braves. The Brewers offense has been nearly non-existent on the current road trip and the path to hits and runs probably won’t get much easier in St. Louis.
This sounds bad. Nonetheless, I'm going to grill some steak, drink some beer and enjoy the weekend. Maybe this is the right formula for run production.
Braves 2, Brewers 1
