Brewers drop opener to the Padres

In the midst of all the reaction to Ryan Braun’s suspension, the Brewers still had a game Monday night.  The result was also not good for Milwaukee.  The Brewers opened their four game series with San Diego falling 5-3 to the Padres at Miller Park.  The loss snapped Milwaukee’s four game winning streak.

Tom Grozelanny was solid up until the 6th inning.  He surrendered 4-runs in the frame squandering Milwaukee’s 3-1 lead.  He finished allowing 5-runs on 5-hits in 5 2/3 innings of work.  Padres pitching allowed just 4-hits on the night.  Starter Andrew Cashner gave up 3 of them while allowing the 3-runs in 6-innings.

Nori Aoki had a pair of hits to lead the Brewers offense while Jean Segura drove in a pair of runs on the night.

The Brewers and Padres meet again tonight for game 2 of the series.  Donovan Hand (0-1, 3.27 ERA) takes on Tyson Ross (0-4, 3.60 ERA) for a 7:10 first pitch.
