MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers still have the National League's best record after losing at home to Arizona Wednesday, 3-2. The Brewers lost twice in their three-game series against the team with the N-L's worst mark. The Diamondbacks are now 13-24. Milwaukee fell to 22-13, still with a four-game lead over second-place Saint Louis in the Central Division. The Brewers remain cold on offense. The Crew scored in the first inning on a double-play grounder, but Bronson Arroyo never let the Crew get past second base in the rest of his seven-and-a-third innings. Arroyo gave up five hits as he improved to 3-2. Addison Reed earned his tenth save, as he snuffed out a Milwaukee rally in the ninth. Lyle Overbay drove in a run with a sacrifice fly, but Mark Reynolds struck out swinging to end the game. Paul Goldschmidt put the Diamondbacks in front for good with a two-run homer in the third off Wily Peralta, who gave up a career-high-tying 11 hits and two runs in six frames. Peralta dropped to 4-2. The Brewers were out-hit 14 to 7 without sluggers Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez in the lineup. Braun is due to return next week from a strained right oblique muscle. Ramirez was given yesterday off to try and clear his head in the midst of a 3 for 48 slump. The Brewers are off today, and will host the New York Yankees Friday night.
