Another Bullpen Bust For Brewers

Zach Greinke was spectular and the bullpen was not as Philadelphiarallied past the Brewers for a 7-6 win on Tuesday night. Greinke gave up just 1 run on three hits, sruck out five.  He even hit a home run before being pulled after seven innings with a 6-1 lead. But the bullpen combination of Jose Veras, Manny Parra and Kameron Loe gave up 6 runs in the 8th to blow the 2nd straight game. Manager Ron Roenicke says that even though Greinke threw just 87 pitches, he felt that he was spent and didn’t want to overwork him.  Ryan Braun and Carlos Gomez both homered in a losing effort.  Marco Estrada takes on Vance Worley in the series finale this afternoon.
