Ken Macha called the Milwaukee Brewers 6th inning meltdown on Monday an avalanche. Chris Narveson and the Brewers jumped out to a 4-0 lead and looked to be in good shape until the 6th. That’s when the Marlins scored 7-runs and went on to beat the Brewers 13-5 in Miami. 13 runs in 3-innings for the Marlins in the win.
Narveson took the loss, allowing 5 runs in 5 2/3 innings of work. But until then, he was good. Narveson finished with 2 walks and 8 strikeouts and allowed just 2-hits in the first five innings. But after surrendering a run in the 6th, Ken Macha paid a visit to the mound and then left Narveson in the game to face Cody Ross, who had already struck out twice on breaking balls. This time, Ross got a fastball and clubbed a 3-run homer to get the ball rolling for the Marlins.
Corey Hart stayed hot on offense. He clubbed his 10th home run in the month of May and 13th overall on the season, which is a team high. Hart has 10 homers and 21 rbi’s over the last 16 games.
The Brewers and Marlins play game 2 of the series tonight. Dave Bush (1-5 5.05 ERA) pitches for the Brewers. Ricky Nolasco (4-4, 4.65 ERA) goes for the Marlins.
