Milwaukee Brewers, 7-1 Over Washington Nationals To Take 3 Of 4 In DC.

3 Out Of 4 And 6 Out Of 7. 

• In what our resident escaped physicist, the estimable Doghouse, accurately described as the, "Worst. Inning. Ever.", in last night's post game Fangraph, five solid innings of work by DC right-hander Collin Balester and a 1-0 DC lead were undone in the sixth inning of this afternoon's game when the Milwaukee Brewers put eight-straight batters on base and collected 6 hits, 2 walks and 6 runs, (a single, double, home run, 4 ER and a walk off Balester, and a walk, single and 2 ER off Nationals' reliever Jason Bergmann), for the third loss in the four game series with Milwaukee and the Nationals' sixth loss out of seven games in the week-long homestand. 

• Coming off a 1.1 inning outing in his last start, Collin Balester began the late afternoon affair against Milwaukee with 5.0 scoreless innings over which he threw 66 pitches and gave up just 2 hits to the visiting Brewers, but it all went wrong when he gave up a leadoff double on an 0-2 curveball to Frank Catalanotto and followed that with a first pitch fastball to Ryan Braun that ended up in left field for a instant 2-1 Brewers' lead to start the top of the sixth inning that wouldn't end...Milwaukee righty Yavoni Gallardo earns his 12th win, (12-10, 3.51 ERA), with a 5.0 innings of work, throwing 108 pitches, 62 for strikes and allowing just 4 hits, 4 walks and 1 ER with 8 K's on the day and 179 on the season in 164.1 IP. 

Brewers win, 7-1 final.
