Starter Kyle Lohse is no stranger to low offensive output.  Lohse worked 6 1/3 innings but was saddled with the loss, falling to 1-4.  Lohse gave up three runs in the first three innings, surrendering home runs to Ian Kinsler and Mitch Moreland.  In his 7-starts, the Brewers have managed to score just 14 runs.

Aramis Ramirez collected three hits and has now hit safely in seven of the eight games he’s played.  Ramirez is hitting .407.

The Brewers are off today.  They’ll face the Reds in Cincinnati on Friday night.
