The Milwaukee Brewers fell to the Atlanta Braves 3-2 last night, but rookie pitcher Tyler Thornburg was solid in his final start of the season.
Thornburg pitched a season high 7-innings and struck out a career high eight, giving the Brewers another strong outing to consider when deciding who will make up the starting rotation in 2014.
Thornburg finished the season with a 3-1 record and 2.04 ERA, striking out 38 over 66 2/3 innings.
The Brewers got out in front early when Nori Aoki doubled to right and Jonathan Lucroy singled him home. Jeff Bianchi drove in the Brewers other run with a solo home run.
Thornburg had gone six innings in each of his first six starts, before stretching last nights outing to 7-innings.
Andrelton Simmons singled home the game winning run in the 11th for the Braves, driving in Justin Upton with the game winner.
Kyle Lohse (10-10, 3.51) pitches for the Brewers tonight. Paul Maholm (10-10, 4.44) goes for the Braves in the series finale.
