MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers lost in 10 innings to Baltimore on Memorial Day, 7-6 at Miller Park. Brewers' closer Francisco Rodriguez blew his second save opportunity of the year when he gave up a pair of runs in the ninth. Jonathan Schoop belted his second homer of the day, and Nick Markakis tied the game with a run-scoring double. In the tenth, ex-Brewer J-J Hardy doubled and scored the winning run on a single from catcher Nick Hundley, who was traded to Baltimore Saturday from San Diego. Rob Wooten took the loss. He's now 1-2. Darren O'Day got the win, but he needed a defensive gem by Hardy at short in the bottom of the ninth. With two on, Hardy snagged a high liner from Mark Reynolds, and then threw out Elian Herrera at third base. O'Day is now 2-0. Milwaukee's Khris Davis and Lyle Overbay hit back-to-back homers in the sixth. Davis went 4 for 4 and fell a triple short of the cycle. Hardy and Schoop each had three hits, as Baltimore out-hit the Crew 14-11. Milwaukee lost its first game when leading after eight innings. They're now 23-1 in that department. Orioles' slugger Chris Davis missed his second straight game while on paternity leave. He's due back tonight, when the Brewers will try to even the series. Right-hander Matt Garza faces Baltimore right-hander Wei-Yin Chen. Pregame coverage on WHBL gets underway at 6:35.
