Just when it looked like the Milwaukee Brewers were going to pick up their first win of the season, the bullpen failed and the losing streak has reached four to start the season. The Brewers fell 2-1 to the Atlanta Braves.
Left handed starter Chris Narveson worked six innings of shutout baseball, leaving with a 1-0 lead.
Narveson allowed just 3 hits, walked 3 and struck out 5.
The Brewers took a 1-0 lead to the 8th inning when reliever Takashi Saito surrendered that lead by allowing a pair of solo home runs to Martin Prado and Dan Uggla to give the Braves the 1-run victory.
Rickie Weeks continued his impressive start to the season by clubbing his third home run of the season in the third, but as a team, the Brewers managed just 5 hits in all.
Manager Ron Roenicke said he’s not frustrated with the 0-4 start, but he admitted even early in the season, they may be pressing for the first win.
Atlanta’s Peter Moylan got three outs for the victory, and Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth to earn his second save.
Game 2 of the series is tonight at Miller Park (7:10pm start).
