Brewers drop 2 of 3 to White Sox

Another close game and another close loss for the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.  Mike Fiers pitched shutout ball into the 8th inning, allowing just 6-hits, but he has nothing to show for it.

Manny Parra served up a double to Alejandro De Aza in the 10th and pinch hitter Eduardo Escobar followed with an RBI single to give the White Sox a 1-0 win over the Brewers in 10 innings.

The Brewers failed to execute several opportunities and played sloppy baseball which is a big reason why they lost Sunday and dropped 2 of 3 in the series to the White Sox. 

The loss dropped the Brewers to 12-21 in games decided by one or two runs.  They’re also just 6-12 in interleague play this season.

The Brewers send Yovani Gallardo to the mound tonight as they open a 3-game series in Cincinnati against the Reds.  The Brewers start the day 6 1/2 games behind the Reds in the Central Division standings.
