The Milwaukee Brewers offense sputtered on Tuesday night in their 4-3 loss to the Detroit Tigers.
The Brewers had their chances for a big inning, including an inning with two runners on base with nobody out, but failed to fully capitallize.
After the Tigers scored four in the top of the second inning to grab a 4-0 lead, the Brewers tried to claw back.
Milwaukee scored one run in three separate innings, including a solo home run from Rowdy Tellez. It was his eighth home run of the season. His blast in the sixth inning cut the deficit to 4-3.
However, the Tigers shut down the Brewers bats the rest of the way.
Eric Lauer lasted just three innings and threw 85 pitches. He could've pitched longer, but a torn nail kept him from returning to the game in the fourth inning.
The Brewers bullpen kept the team in the ballgame, however. Elvis Peguero, Joel Payamps, and Peter Strzelecki all pitched scoreless outings that covered six innings.
The Brewers will try to avoid the sweep at the hands of the Tigers on Wednesday afternoon at 12:40pm at American Family Field. After the game, listen to Tim Allen on The Baseball Postgame Show on 97.3 The Game.
