Brewers only get two hits and get blanked by Marlins
New Richmond Wisconsin 127 South Knowles Avenue 54017

The Milwaukee Brewers only had two hits Tuesday night in losing at Florida 3-0.

Ryan Braun doubled and Prince Fielder singled for the only hits off Scott Olsen, who was one out short of his first career complete game.

He walked four and struck out eight, as he improved to 4-1. Kevin Gregg only needed one pitch to get his sixth save.

Brewers' Manager Ned Yost was ejected in the fourth inning for arguing balls and strikes.

Yost said Olsen was outstanding and he still believes the Brewer bats will get hot soon, but Braun says it's beyond early, and it's beyond frustrating as the Brewers fell back to .500 for the first time since Opening Day.

Milwaukee also dropped to fourth place in the National League Central, five games behind front-running St. Louis.

Jeff Suppan gave up all three Florida runs in five-plus innings and he took the loss to go 1-2.

Mike Jacobs hit a two-run homer, and Luis Gonzalez went 4-4 with an RBI as the Marlins won their third game in their last four.

Milwaukee now has a four-game losing streak with 17 straight scoreless innings.

They'll try to bust out of that tonight (Wednesday) at Miami. Right-hander Dave Bush will face Marlins' right-hander Burke Badenhop.
