In his Brewers debut, right-hander Kyle Lohse pitched six innings of encouraging outings and Milwaukee shortstop Jean Segura smacked his first Major League homer but a win wasn’t in the cards for the Brewers. The Arizona Diamondbacks got lucky on a wild pitch in the seventh and won 3-1.
Left fielder Ryan Braun was scratched from the roster before the game with a stiff neck and Aramis Ramirez left in the fourth inning with a left knee sprain.
Lohse allowed one run on five hits for the Diamondbacks and walked nobody. Arizona’s first run came in the fourth on an RBI from first baseman Paul Goldschmidt. In the bottom of the inning, Segura answered with a solo home run for Milwaukee.
The Brewers bullpen left fans wanting at Miller Park in the seventh. Michael Gonzalez misfired, striking the umpire’s mask and the ball rolled just far enough to allow two Arizona runners to score.
The Crew has another shot at the Diamondbacks tonight; the opening pitch is at 6:10.
