Washington scored four runs in the 2nd inning and sent the Brewers to their 7th straight loss with an 8-2 win on Thursday. Yovani Gallardo gave up seven runs in just five innings worth of work to take the loss. Carlos Gomez drilled a pinch-hit, two run homer in the 8th for the Brewers only runs of the night. Tyler Thornburg was pulled from the game in the 8th inning with what they are calling arm fatigue. The series continues tonight as Mike Fiers takes on Ross Detwiler. GM Doug Melvin has confirmed that he will trade pitcher Zack Greinke before the trading deadline next week Texas, Anahiem and the Chicago white sox are said to be the top teams interested in Greinke.
On Saturday Jordan Zimmerman will get the start for Washington. He grew up in Auburndale and played college baseball at UW-Stevens Point.
