Thursday’s Game: Brewers 5, Reds 6
Record: 16-13, Third Place

Thursday’s Game

- Braden Looper struggled for the first real time in a Brewers uniform, giving up 5 runs and 8 hits, including 2 homeruns over just 3 1/3 frames. The offense fought back, including a pair of RBI by both Prince Fielder and Mike Cameron, and a RBI by Hardy. Milwaukee couldn’t escape the abbreviated roadtip undefeated, but return to Miller Park winners of 4 of the last 5 contests.
