Let's look at the positives first. Mike Bolsinger pitched more than well enough to win. Three runs in six and a third innings, and scattered seven hits. A really good night from him. Our offense was pretty good too. They took advantage of Brewer defensive miscues and ended up scoring four runs. Again, a good night for Bolsinger and the offense.
It all went to hell in the seventh inning, but first, a bit of backstory. Yesterday, Parra got hit by a pitch. Didi supposedly got hit by a pitch to start the game, though it was as phantom a HBP as you'll ever see, and then in the bottom of the sixth, Owings was hit in the back by a pitch that richochet up and knocked off his helmet. Mike Bolsinger got pulled after getting one out in the seventh for Evan Marshall. Marshall gave up a single and a double, and then was facing Ryan Braun. He threw at him once, and missed. He tried again. And hit him to load the bases with one out. And then gave up a Grand Slam to Lucroy, giving the Brewers a late, three-run lead. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Final score 7-5, Brewers. Full recap to follow.
