On Friday night the Brewers began their tough interleague stretch in Boston. Unfortunately they lost.
The Red Sox have been red hot as of late. Nearly no one has been able to slow them down. Friday night was no exception. The Brewers most consistent pitcher Shaun Marcum was pitching and the offense has been decent in the past. But those variables still could not slow down the Red Sox.
To start in the first inning the Brewers were able to get a lead on a two run single from Casey McGehee. That lead did not last. In the bottom of the first the Red Sox were able to tie it up. Thanks in large part to Marcum being all over the place with his command. He threw 44 pitches in the inning. That was it for Marcum, he left with a hip injury.
The Red Sox took a lead in the second inning off of reliever Marco Estrada. After a walk and a double the Sox got a single to drive in two runs. After two innings the Sox led 4-2. Brewers tied it up in their half of the third inning. But after tieing it up they would not score again in the game. They consistently allowed runs and hits. They lost the game 10-4. There really weren't many highlights from the Brewers bats after the third inning. They only managed a hit after the third. The Red Sox pitcher was able to make eight innings mostly thanks to the atrocious offensive display to conclude the game.
But the only thing on manager Ron Roenicke's mind after the game was the availability of his starting pitcher. Marcum will be reevaluated on Monday in Milwaukee.
At least the Brewers are still in first place after another loss by the Cardinals.
