A big, ten game road trip against three teams above them in the National League Central Division went horribly for the Milwaukee Brewers, limping out of St. Louis after falling in the rubber game of a weekend series 4-2 Sunday at Busch Stadium. Milwaukee went just 2-8 on the trip to fall to 17-25 on the season and now 10 and a half games behind the division leading Cardinals. St. Louis scored all 4 of their runs in the 4th inning off Kyle Lohse on RBI hits from Yadier Molina, John Jay, David Freese and Peter Kozma. Lohse lasted 6 innings, giving up 8 hits and four runs to fall to 1-5 on the season. Three of his losses have come against his former team, three games in which the Brewer offense produced a total of three runs. Milwaukee cut the lead in half in the 6th inning on hits from Yuniesky Betancourt and Jeff Bianchi. The Brewers loaded the bases in the 7th with nobody out but failed to score. Jean Segura popped out and Ryan Braun grounded into a double play. Braun left seven runners stranded going 0 for 4. The Brewers return home to start an 8 game stand beginning with the Los Angeles Dodgers Monday night at Miller Park. Yovani Gallardo faces Clayton Kershaw in the opener. Pre-Game coverage begins on WTAQ at 6:35 PM.
