MIL 3, BOS 12 / Brewers finish 2-5 on road trip

The Boston Red Sox defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 12-3 in a Sunday afternoon rubber match at Fenway Park. Yovani Gallardo took the loss and saw his ERA rise to 4.11 after giving up five earned runs. Knuckleballer Tim Wakefield stymied the Brewers all day, but did give up home runs to Nyjer Morgan (2) and Prince Fielder (20). The Brewers finished 2-5 on the road trip that began in Chicago. Before their series with the Cubs began at Wrigley Field, Milwaukee had won eight of their last ten games and were riding high after a weekend sweep of rival St. Louis which vaulted them into first place in the NL Central. Yet with the Cardinals scuffling as of late, the Brewers find themselves still tied atop the division. Ron Roenicke’s crew has the most drastic home/road split in baseball. The Brewers are an astounding 25-9 at home, the best in the majors; however on the road they are an abysmal 15-24. They return home tomorrow to take on the Tampa Bay Rays; Chris Narveson will toe the rubber for the Crew and oppose Jeff Niemann, who gets the nod for Tampa Bay.
