Ryan Braun, Travis Shaw, Yasmani Grandal, and Hernan Perez all homered for the Brewers in the loss.
Adrian Houser, called up to make the start, gave up nine hits and five runs over four innings. Jacob Barnes lasted just one out, giving up five runs, while Aaron Wilkerson came in to close out the game for Milwaukee, allowing three more in one and two-thirds innings pitched.
