On Friday night, the Milwaukee Brewers got out to an early lead, only to watch it fade, losing to the Chicago White Sox 8-3. Ryan Braun put Milwaukee ahead in the first with a two-run home run giving Milwaukee a 2-0 lead. Utility-man Hernan Perez, who got the start at second base, extended the lead to 3-0 on a sacrifice fly that scored Travis Shaw in the third inning. Chicago stormed back in the bottom of the third, highlighted by RBI singles by Charlie Tilson and Yoan Moncada. It was all White Sox from that point, scoring 3 in the 6th inning and 2 in the 7th. Milwaukee’s usually lights out bullpen struggled in the loss, with runs allowed by Boone Logan, Matt Albers, and Dan Jennings. The Brewers red-hot offense was also limited in the loss, only combining for 5 hits in the game, including a 2-3 performance by Travis Shaw. Milwaukee is back in action Saturday with Jhoulys Chacin on the mound for the Brewers in game two of the three-game set against the White Sox. First pitch is 1:10.
