MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers ended a 3-6 home stand with a 4-1 loss to Texas Wednesday night. Kyle Lohse gave up a run in each of the first three innings, but he settled down and surrendered four total runs on nine hits and a pair of walks in six-and-a-third frames. Once again, Lohse failed to get enough run support from the Milwaukee offense. Each team had a dozen hits, and the Brewers left 13 runners on base. Carlos Gomez went 4 fo4, falling a homer short of the cycle to extend his career-best hitting streak to 14 games. Gomez leads the National League with a .386 batting average. The Brewers scored their only run in the seventh when Ryan Braun tripled and Aramis Ramirez doubled him home – only to get thrown out at third. Braun extended his hitting streak in Interleague games to 30, the third best in big league history. Ian Kinsler and Mitch Moreland each homered for Texas, which avoided losing three straight for the first time this season. Derek Holland got the win, giving up a run on 10 hits over seven innings. Joe Nathan picked up his ninth save. The loss dropped Lohse to 1-4, as the Brewers dropped their fifth game in their last six. Milwaukee is off today, and will open a series at Cincinnati tomorrow night.
