Dave Bush gave up two decisive home runs last night, as the Milwaukee Brewers fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 at Miller Park.
Matt Kemp hit a monster 447-foot shot in the second inning to put the Dodgers up 2-zip. Then with the Brewers leading 3-2 in the sixth, newly-acquired Rod Barajas hit a three-run homer off Bush. Ex-Brewer Ronnie Belliard had kept the inning alive with a two-out single. And Jamey Carroll also singled before Barajas hit his game-winning blast. The Dodgers had just picked him up Sunday on a waiver claim from the New York Mets, and he went 3-for-4 on the night. Rickie Weeks homered and Casey McGehee went 3-for-4 with an RBI for Milwaukee, which has now lost two straight.
Corey Hart did not start for the third straight game due to a bad hamstring, but he pinched-hit in the ninth and popped out. Bush gave up five runs in six innings to take the loss. He’s now 6-and-11. Ted Lilly won his fifth consecutive start since being traded from the Chicago Cubs in July. He gave up three runs in six-and-a-third innings, and is now 8-and-8.
The Dodgers have won two-of-their-last-three, and they’ll play the Brewers again tonight at Miller Park. Left-hander Randy Wolf will face Los Angeles right-hander Hiroki Kuroda.
