As good as the Brewers have been most of the season, they were equally as bad yesterday.  They gave up three runs on one two-error play in the 5th inning.

Losing pitcher Yovani Gallardo retired the first two hitters of the game, then walked Justin Morneau and gave up four straight solid hits.  Gallardo worked 5-innings, allowed 10 hits and 8 runs (5 earned), falling to 5-5 on the season.

The Brewers completed a stretch of 20-games in 20 days, going 13-7 during that stretch.  They finally get a day off today and will open a series in Toronto on Tuesday night against the Blue Jays.
