Following a 6-4 road trip out west, the Milwaukee Brewers thought they were over the hump. The Crew thought they had momentum heading into a 6-game home stand against the Braves and Phillies. But after the first two games, the only thing the Brewers are showing is their inability to win at home.
Atlanta followed Monday’s win with a 11-3 victory over the Brewers on Tuesday night. The Braves came to Milwaukee with the worst road record in the National League and the 14th-ranked offense with regards to runs scored, yet they’ve put a total of 19-runs on the board in the first two games of the series. Brewers manager Ken Macha said the Braves offense isn’t inept, regardless of where they were, coming to Milwaukee.
It was the 10th loss in the last 14 home games for the Brewers, and pitcher Dave Bush has no explanation.
The Braves go for the sweep with a day game at Miller Park today (12:10pm 1st pitch)
