PHOENIX, AZ (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers were shut out at Arizona last night, 4-to-nothing. It was the 10th goose-egg for the Brewer offense this year, and the third shutout in eight games on their current road trip. It also dropped Milwaukee into a tie for first place with idle Pittsburgh in the National League Central. Saint Louis is one game back. Ian Kennedy held the Brewers to just four hits in seven innings, with a pair of walks and five strikeouts. He earned his third straight victory and improved to 11-and-3. Zack Greinke had a solid outing, striking out seven in seven innings. But he gave up solo homers in the fourth to Justin Upton and Miguel Montero. And Greinke’s record fell to 7-and-4, as he remains winless in his last five starts. He has not had a win since June 21st. Kelly Johnson hit a two-run homer in the eighth off LaTroy Hawkins. Ryan Braun had Milwaukee’s only extra-base hit, a double. The Brewers went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position, and Prince Fielder is hitless in his last 14 at-bats. The Brewers split their four-game set with the Diamondbacks, and they’re now 4-and-4 on their 11-game road trip – which ends with a three-game series in San Francisco that starts tonight. Right-hander Shaun Marcum will face Giants’ righty Matt Cain. Coverage on WHBL begins at 8:40.
