Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Zach Davies has been so good for so long. Yesterday, Davies struggled, allowing six runs in 4 1/3 innings in a 8-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers at Miller Park.
Davies had gone 5-0 with a 2.64 ERA over his previous 10 starts. He was 3-0 with a 1.64 ERA in five outings in June. But Davies surrendered home runs to Trayce Thompson, Yasmani Grandal and Corey Seager.
Overall, Davies allowed eight hits. The 4 1/3 innings is his shortest start since his first start on April 17.
Dodger starter Kenta Maeda only allowed a sacrifice fly off the bat of Aaron Hill. He gave up just three hits in his six innings of work, walking two and striking out six.
The Brewers managed just four hits for the game.
Milwaukee hits the road for three games this weekend in St. Louis. Matt Garza gets the start against his former team on Friday night.
