The Indians just can't seem to ride a wave of momentum. After taking two of three in Cincinnati, they headed to Milwaukee, and against a last-place Brewers team that serves up runs in near-record fashion (only two teams in the league give up more runs than the Brewers), watched their offensive output disappear again, falling to Milwaukee, 8-1.
Danny Salazar gave up three quick runs to the Brewers, two coming on Jean Segura's two-run homer to center in the second inning. Meanwhile, the Indians just couldn't push one across, until Giovanny Urshela drove Yan Gomes home with an RBI double in the 7th to cut the lead to 3-1.
But the Brewers took it from there, tacking on five more runs to seal the deal. Four of those runs came in the 7th, three off Zach McAllister, and the Indians never recovered.
The teams will wrap up the short series with a matinee on Wednesday.
