Yuck. This was a disgusting way to put a bow on a disgusting series for the Milwaukee Brewers. Unfortunately, I don’t have much for you on this page as Milwaukee only mustered three hits in the entire game.
What I can say, however, is the mental miscues continues for the Brewers, as they racked up another error and multiple other mistakes that aren’t necessarily seen in the box score.
Christian Yelich missed the entire series and was placed on the disabled list before this game retroactive to April 5. The Brewers have sorely missed his production at the top of the lineup and can’t wait to have him back.
In his position, the Brewers called up right-handed pitcher Taylor Williams who made his 2018 debut in this game. He pitched one inning, allowing two hits and one unearned run. With runners on first and second, Tommy La Stella hit a sharp groundball to first baseman Jesus Aguilar who botched the perfect double-play opportunity. This brought the run all the way around to score and increased the Cubs lead to 3-0.
That was way too much for the Brewers to overcome, as they failed to score in the game for the third time in their last five. Let’s hope things turn around as Milwaukee heads to St. Louis for a tthree-gameset beginning on Monday.
