The Milwaukee Brewers are having trouble getting hits and now, they're having trouble just hitting the ball period. The Brewers fell to the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg for the second straight night by a 5-1 count, managing only three hits for the second straight game but this time, they struck out a season high 14 times. Alex Cobb fanned a dozen Brewers over 8 innings to get the win. Matt Garza matched Cobb but left with no decision, pitching seven innings, allowing a run on five hits. Scooter Gennett's sacrifice fly in the 5th gave Milwaukee the lead but Ben Zobrist tied the game with a solo home run off Garza in the bottom of the 6th. In the 8th, Will Smith came on but lasted only a third of an inning, allowing two hits with three walks as the Rays rallied for four runs. The Brewers have now dropped three straight and in those three games, have managed to score just two runs, on 12 hits with a whopping 30 strikeouts. Milwaukee's lead in the NL Central is down to one game over now second place Pittsburgh with St. Louis a game and a half back. Yovani Gallardo will face Tampa's ace David Price in the series finale Wednesday. Pre-game coverage begins at 10:35 AM on WTAQ.
