WASHINGTON, DC (WHBL) - Kyle Lohse did exactly what his manager hoped he would do, when the Milwaukee Brewers beat Washington 4-1 Wednesday night in the nation’s capital. Skipper Ron Roenicke moved Lohse’s start up by a day to try and give his worn-out bullpen a little rest. And the veteran right-hander came through with eight solid innings, matching his season-high. He gave up one run on just four hits with a walk and seven strikeouts. Norichika Aoki had the game-winning hit with a two-run single, and Logan Schafer belted a two-run triple. Lohse is now 3-0 in his last seven starts, and 4-6 on the season. Francisco Rodriguez left two runners on in the ninth, but escaped with his seventh save of the year. Ross Detweiler gave up four runs in eight innings to go 0-4 in his last six outings. He’s now 2-7 for the year. Anthony Rendon hit a solo homer for Washington, which has lost three of its last five. The Brewers have now won two straight, and will try to take 3 of 4 from the Nationals in today's finale. Right-hander Donovan Hand will start for the Crew against Nats’ right-hander Taylor Jordan. It's an ultra-early game today, as pregame coverage on WHBL begins this morning at 9:30.
