MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers lost more than a game Monday night, when they got crushed by the Oakland A’s 10-2 at Miller Park. The Crew’s best starter as of late – Marco Estrada – left in the fifth inning with a strained hamstring. Estrada hopes he’ll be cured in time for his next start, but Brewers’ manager Ron Roenicke says he’s not so sure. Estrada gave up a homer to Coco Crisp on the third pitch of the game, and things went downhill from there for Milwaukee. Brandon Moss added a solo shot in the second, and the “A’s” scored six runs in the fifth to put this one away. Estrada said he felt a pinch in his leg just before giving up a run-scoring double to Jed Lowrie in the fifth. Estrada left after giving up five runs on nine hits and a walk. He was tagged with the loss, dropping him to 4-4. Tommy Milone went seven innings for the win. He’s now 6-5. Crisp went 4 for 5 and fell a triple short of the cycle. The A’s had 19 total hits, the most allowed by Milwaukee since July of 2011. Rickie Weeks hit a two-run homer for the Crew. He appeared to hit a second homer, but a replay review showed that it bounced off the top of the wall and Weeks was awarded a triple. Oakland has now won four straight, and 15 of its last 17. Milwaukee has dropped two in a row, and six of its last eight. The two teams play again tonight. Right-hander Kyle Lohse faces A’s right-hander A-J Griffin. Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 6:35.
