Brewers bomb fifth straight

The Milwaukee Brewers have lost five straight for the first time since last August, after falling at Florida Wednesday night 6-2.

Dave Bush gave up six runs in six innings in his first start since coming back from Triple-"A" Nashville.

Bush is now 0-4 and his ERA is a tad under seven.

The Brewers ended a 22-inning scoreless streak in the sixth, when Rickie Weeks hit a two-run homer, but that was their only offense.

Milwaukee only had five hits, for a total of seven in their two games with Florida.

The Marlins scored three in the third to go in front for good. Mike Jacobs hit a two-run double before leaving with a tight left quadriceps muscle. Jorge Cantu and Dan Uggla hit back to back homers off Bush in the sixth.

Hanley Ramirez went 2-2 with a pair of walks and he scored twice. Burke Badenhop earned his first Major League win with a career-high seven strikeouts in five and two thirds innings.

Milwaukee is now below .500 for the first time since last August.

They'll try to even their 16-17 record in the series finale against the Marlins tonight (Thursday). Right-hander Carlos Villanueva goes up against Florida lefty Mark Hendrickson.
