Braves Put the Hammer Down on Crew

Seth McClung's second outing as a Brewers starter didn't go nearly as well as his first, as he was pounded for 8 hits and 6 runs in 4 2/3 innings. The Brewers still come away with 2 out of the three in the series, even though they only scored 5 runs in the last 3 games. The way our offense has been playing, this one was pretty much over as soon as McClung started given up those runs.

In his relief, Tim Dillard and Brian Shouse were able to keep any runs from scoring. Newcomer Julian Tavarez, however, wasn't as fortunate. He gave up two more runs in the 9th, and the Braves won this one, 8-1.

As I mentioned, it was another rough day for the offense. The only run of the day was a Russell Branyan home run, although Braun did have a run called back because of interference at the plate by Corey Hart. Still, as they head into their series against Houston, the offense is going to need to click much better than they have been.

Box Score.
