These aren’t the banged up Twins anymore. Last night, the Milwaukee Brewers got roughed up in their series opener against the Yankees, 12-2 in New York.
Ace Zach Greinke also suffered his worst outing since putting on a Brewers uniform, getting roughed up for 7-runs in just 2-innings of work.
Greinke’s struggles against the Yankees continued. In 5-games, 4 of them starts, he’s 0-3 with a 11.29 earned run average. Greinke surrendered 5-runs in the second inning alone last night as the Brewers dropped to 15-25 on the road this season.
Mark Teixeira homered and drove in 4-runs, while Nick Swisher added a 3-run homer.
The Brewers send Shaun Marcum to the hill for game 2 of the series tonight.
