For the 9th time this year the Milwaukee Brewers failed to score a run in a game. Last night, the Arizona Diamond Backs stopped the Crew 3-0 at Chase Field.
D-backs Rookie Josh Collmenter tormented the Brewers for the 2nd time this season. Last night he gave up just 3-hits in 8-innings. Back on July 6th, Collmenter tossed 6 shut-out innings of 3-hit baseball. Brewers starter Randy Wolf says Collmenter is for real:
Wolf was solid despite falling to 6-7 on the year. He went 7 1/3 surrendering 3-runs, 2-earned, on 8-hits. It’s the 5th time this year the Brewers were shutout in a game Wolf started.
Ryan Braun missed his 2nd straight game and 10th in the last 13-games with a calf injury. Manager Ron Roenicke said before the game he doesn’t think the DL will be necessary. Milwaukee is 6-7 in that stretch.
Game 2 of the 4-game series is tonight as Yovani Gallardo takes on Barry Enright for an 8:40 first pitch.
