Tyler Thornburg made another pitch to stay in the Brewers starting rotation, allowing 1 unearned run in 6-innings in a 5-4 loss to the Texas Rangers.

The Brewers bullpen, normally very reliable, couldn’t hold the lead.  The Brewers bullpen walked three batters to start the 7th inning and all three scored to give the Rangers the come from behind win.  Texas had been 7-40 when trailing after 6-innings.  It’s the 12th win in the last 14 games for the red-hot Rangers.

Juan Francisco clubbed a pair of home runs, driving in all four Brewer runs in the loss.

The Brewers have played 16 of their last 19 games on the road.  They’ll return to Milwaukee to open a 4-game series against the Cincinnati Reds at Miller Park tonight.
