Brooms useless for the Brewers in Chicago
The Brewers were unable to complete a three game sweep of the Cubs on Thursday when they took their first loss of the season, 6-3.
Dave Bush (0-1) was unable to throw the third straight quality start for Brewers' hurlers. Bush gave up six runs and six hits in only 5 1/3 innings. He walked a career high five batters which led to his demise. The bullpen continued to impress as Seth McClung and Derrick Turnbow held the Cubs scoreless for 2 2/3 innings.
Prince Fielder knocked in his first two runs of the season. Rickie Weeks and Tony Gwynn continue to impress at the top of the order. Weeks reached base three times, including two hits. He also scored two runs and stole his first base of the season. Gwynn had a hit and scored a run as well but left the game due to a tight hamstring.
Milwaukee now heads home to Miller Park to open the home season on Friday against the Giants. Carlos Villanueva will take the mound for the Crew and face Giants' lefty, Jonathan Sanchez.
