HOUSTON, TX (WHBL) - Four pitches into the game, Milwaukee starter Zack Greinke was out. Then, manager Ron Roenicke was ejected. With a start like that, it shouldn’t be surprising the Brewers dropped a 6-3 decision at Houston. The victory broke a nine-game losing streak for the Astros. Greinke was ejected for spiking the baseball after a close play at first base. He thought the runner was out. That gave Houston a bit of a boost, as did a home run by Scott Moore and three hits apiece by J.D. Martinez and Jose Altuve. The Astros scored in that heat-filled first inning, then added three more off Livan Hernandez in the third. Houston wound up scoring more runs than they had plated in their last three games. Milwaukee scored twice in the sixth on a pair of errors and a wild pitch. The final Brewer run was knocked in by Cody Ransom’s eighth-inning double. The Astros will have to deal with Greinke again today, as the Brewers have named him the starter. Coverage on WHBL begins this afternoon at 1:30. Todays' game is the final one for the Brewers before the All Star break.
