The Brewers fell to the Atlanta Braves 10-2 on Sunday afternoon at Miller Park, making it 12 losses in the last 13 day games and 22 losses in 33 day games this season. Ken Macha's club fell back to .500 at 49-49.
Ryan Braun would like to blame it on the pitching and he'd be at least partially right. But Braun and the rest of the offense need to take their part of the blame as well. The Brewers are hitting .221 in day games, which ranks dead last in the National League. Turn the lights on at night and the Brewers team batting average climbs to .276, which leads the league.
Casey Kotchman clubbed a three-run homer to break things open against Brewers starter Braden Looper. Brian McCann and Kelly Johnson also homered for the Braves. The Brewers got a home run from Corey Hart.
The Brewers have now dropped 6-straight series and will try to end that drought when they open a 4-game set against Washington tonight at Miller Park.
