12-12: Crew drops 3rd series of the season

Milwaukee lost to the Reds today 7-6 in 10 innings. Sergio Mitre ended up with the loss after giving up a HR to Drew Stubbs...the strike-out machine himself. Yovani Gallardo struggled from the get-go by allowing 4 earned runs in the 1st half-inning of play. He now drops to 2-1 and his ERA is at a hefty 4.88, which isn't your typical ACE type stuff. When the carnage was done, Yo exited the game after 6 innings; so he did settle down after the bloodbath of an opening.

Ryan Braun broke Robin Yount's record of 23 straight games of reaching base safely today. Albeit it was on a HBP, but Braunie set the new club record of 24 games. He went o'fer on the day. Joey Votto extended his streak as well to 25.

Corey Hart had a solid start to his season by collecting 2 hits in the game. He did leave 1 stranded however. Carlos Gomez drove in 2 off of 1 hit while Betancourt continued his hot streak at the plate by going 2 for 5 (including a double).

I guess we could take away one good thing from the game today....Milwaukee's 3-4-5 hitters all went hitless today, yet they only lost by 1 run.

Sergio Mitre has struggled as of late and is doing his best to compete with Sean Green for Greinke's roster spot. Both are equally sucky as of late, but I see more upside in Mitre.
