The Brewers bullpen explodes in a 5-1 loss to St. Louis. Manny Parra was brilliant in his return to the Big Leagues, throwing 7 scoreless innings, giving up just three hits and striking out seven, but he gets the no decision as Carlos Villanueva, Mitch Stetter, and Todd Coffey combined to give up 5 runs in the 8 th . Ryan Ludwick's three run shot off of Coffey was the big blow in the frame. Joel Piniero threw a three hit complete game to earn the win.
The Brewers open up a three game set with the Dodgers tonight at Miller Park. Braden Looper takes the hill for the Crew while Chad Billingsley gets the start for LA.
