Milwaukee Brewers: 250 Words or Less: 4/20/11
The Milwaukee Brewers’ first multi-city road trip ended on a down note as they lost the final game against the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3.
Chris Narveson pitched nearly 5 innings of a no-hitter and was looking unstoppable until the Phillies tied it up with a 3-run home run in the 6th. The Brewers struck early against former Cy Young winner Cliff Lee, getting a run in the first off a string of hits.
For the second game in a row, the Phillies committed an error that created scoring opportunities for Milwaukee. It wasn’t enough as the bullpen gave up the go-ahead run in the 8th. The Brewers had 10 hits on the game but only 2 after the 5th inning.
Milwaukee returns home after finishing 4-4 on the 8 game road trip. The next three series’ come against division opponents, with the first one being the Houston Astros. Yovani Gallardo is the probable starter on Friday.

Myself, Wally & John will all be at the event and it sounds like it’ll be a pretty fun time. More info here if interested: http://bigleaguetoursmilwaukeeparty-pocketdoppler.eventbrite.com/
