Brewers Drop 3rd In A Row

ATLANTA, GA (LEARFIELD-WSAU)  The Milwaukee Brewers are on three-game losing streak, after getting crushed at Atlanta 9-to-3 last night.  The Braves scored in each of the first three innings and never looked back.

 Atlanta churned out a season-high 15 hits off six Milwaukee pitchers -- including first baseman Lyle Overbay, who got the final out in the eighth in relief of a struggling Wei-Chung Wang.  Wang, the Brewers' seldom-used Rule-Five draft pick, gave up five runs in just two-thirds of an inning -- including Ryan Doumit's 100th career homer and a two-run blast by Justin Upton.  Freddie Freeman also homered for Atlanta.

 Ryan Braun homered in the eighth for his 700th career R-B-I, only the fifth Brewer in history to reach that figure.  Khris Davis belted a two-run shot for the Crew. Carlos Gomez singled in three trips, in his first game back after missing five contests due to a suspension, a sore back, and a stomach virus.  

Wily Peralta took the loss, giving up three runs -- two earned - in five frames.  He's now 4-and-3.  Mike Minor got the win, surrendering two runs on five hits in six-and-two-thirds' frames.  Minor is now 2-and-2.  

The Braves continue to lead the National League East by a game-and-a-half over Washington.  The Brewers saw their lead in the Central Division cut to three-and-a-half over Saint Louis.

 The Brewers and Braves will play each other again tonight at Turner Field.  Right-hander Yovani Gallardo faces Atlanta right-hander Julio Teheran.
