Garza's Solid Outing Not Good Enough As Diamondbacks Walk-Off In Ninth

Just like game two Tuesday, the Milwaukee Brewers found themselves down more than one run after the first inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Again, they would make a comeback and tie the game unfortunately, it wasn't the turnout they were hoping for as the Diamondbacks broke the tie in the bottom of the ninth to win in walk-off fashion Wednesday 4-3.

The lone offense for the Brewers came in the fourth inning and with the score 3-0 Arizona. Jonathan Lucroy and Carlos Gomez would single to lead off the inning and two batters later, Khris Davis with one swing tied the game on a three-run home run to right for his twelfth of the year. Davis was the only Brewer to finish with two or more hits as the team tallied five total.

After giving up two runs in the first inning, starting pitcher Matt Garza settled in nicely and had is longest outing since his first start of the season against Atlatna where he flirted with a no-hitter. Garza went 7 2/3 innings allowing seven hits, three runs (two earned) and struck out four. "I just kept making pitches," Garza said. "It was ground balls and ground balls, that's it. Some flute plays, but that's all there was. Everything else was on the ground. no big deal."

Will Smith came on for Garza to get the Brewers out of the Diamondbacks threat in the eighth retiring the only batter he faced. Brandon Kintzler (1-3, 3.12) took the loss after giving up a double and the game winning single with two outs in the ninth.

The first inning has not been going so well for the Brewers as teams have scored at least one run in the first inning in four consecutive game.

With the loss, the Brewers are 13 games over .500 and have one more game in Arizona before heading to Colorado for a weekend series. Yovani Gallardo (4-4, 3.51 ERA) will make the start for the Brewers in the finale against Chase Anderson Diamondbacks right-hander (5-1, 3.21 ERA). Gallardo looks like to be heading for a mid-season surge. In the last two starts, he has allowed one run on 10 hits in 14 innings, with 16 punch outs. First pitch today from Citi Field is at 3:40PM.
