Milwaukee Brewers Starter Eric Lauer didn't have his best stuff from the very first batter on Tuesday night and that led to a 6-2 loss at the hands of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
On the second pitch of the game, Mookie Betts hit a solo home run to open up the scoring. The Dodgers added another run in the inning to take a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the first frame.
Los Angeles scored a run in the second and third innings to extend the lead to 4-0. Lauer exited with two outs in the fourth inning. Finishing with three earned runs against him.
In the sixth inning, a two-run home run by Miguel Vargas gave the Dodgers a 6-0 lead.
However, the Brewers answered back in the bottom of the seventh inning with solo home runs by Rowdy Tellez (10) and Victor Caratini (2). That cut the deficit to 6-2.
Despite more chances, neither team would score again. The Brewers fell to the Dodgers 6-2.
