While I like many of you would have most likely rather watched the Brewers during the hours of a hot Memorial Day afternoon on Monday, it was instead business as usual as the Brewers and Reds squared off in a night contest. I don't think it would have mattered too much what time the game started however, because the location would have been the same. The Brewers may be a robust 21-7 at Miller Park, but they are a disappointing 8-18 on the road, a record which included a 7-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Monday.
Milwaukee found themselves down 5-0 early on in this one, thanks in part to a 3-run shot by Jay Bruce in the fourth inning (Bruce was just a double shot of the cycle, by the way). Chris Narveson would only make it through four innings, and if the Brewers were going to win this game they would need some production from the bullpen and at the plate. Milwaukee did rally a bit in the next half inning, scoring three runs in the top of the third, and you began to think that the magic that the Brewers have had this last week and a half might be returning. The opposite happened instead, and the Reds tacked on a few more runs to get that 7-3 victory.
The loss drops the Brewers to 29-25, but they remain just 2 1/2 games back of the Cardinals as they lost today as well. At some point, Milwaukee is going to have to figure out why they struggle so much on the road, correct those problems, and then move on. They have a tough stretch of games coming up, finishing up this series in Cincinnati and then taking on the Marlins for a four game set. Realistically, I'd like to see them go 3-3 in these next six games, and then they can come back to Miller Park to take on the Mets and those aforementioned Cardinals.
The bad Narveson
Nothing was memorable
In this tough Crew loss
POTG: Eh, what the hell. Let's give it to Josh Wilson for his first home run as a Brewer.
