The Milwaukee Brewers are 0-3 for the first time since 2003. They were
swept by the Reds in Cincinnati, capping things off with a 12-3 setback on Sunday at Great American Ballpark.
Brewers starter Randy Wolf surrendered 6-earned runs on 10-hits and the Reds clubbed four home runs, two by Ryan Hanigan in the Reds victory. Jonny Gomes and Brandon Phillips also homered for the Reds.
Rickie Weeks led off the game with a home run, his second game starting home run of the season. Weeks now has 23 lead-off home runs in his career.
Wolf’s struggles are a continuation of his struggles this spring. He posted an 8.74 ERA in 6-spring starts.
The Brewers now return home to Milwaukee with an 0-3 record and will host the Atlanta Braves in the home opener at Miller Park. Chris Narveson (12-9, 4.99 ERA in 2010) gets the start for the Brewers today. He’ll face Atlanta’s Brandon Beachy (0-2, 3.00 ERA in 2010). First pitch is set for 1:10pm today.
