Yovani Gallardo gave up eight earned runs in three innings Monday as the Brewers fell for their sixth straight time 10-5. The Nationals pushed Milwaukee 17 games under .500 for the first time since the final week of 2004, and 19 games behind the National League Central-leading Pirates.
Back-to-back home runs by Rickie Weeks and Juan Francisco made it a ballgame late, but it was too little too late. Norichika Aoki and Jean Segura also had RBI’s in the game.
Game two of four will begin in Washington tonight at 6:05 PM.
